The Debaucher, Jason Camlot's third collection of poetry, walks an oscillating lyrical tightrope between realms of cosmopolitan sophistication and ribald hilarity.In these surprising poems high art and low art gather together, sometimes on the battlefield, sometimes at lover's leap. Camlot's poetry always maintains an evocative connection to the tender absurdities of our daily lives. He makes us laugh, nervously, at ourselves.Praise for Jason Camlot's poetry"This work has Kafkaesque reverberations and a rich awareness of the evocative power of sight, sound and smell ... and moves from the prehistoric to the present while displaying a strong sense of European myth and history intermingled with a heady eroticism." — Karl Jirgens, Rampike Magazine
