Poetry. A heady bacchanal of linguistic cynicism and premature nostalgia, CHRONIC YOUTH charts the disintegration of youth's self-righteous anger. Oliver Jones' narrator navigates us through his own sense of gracelessness and missed opportunities in a world where confessional impulses are diverted by violent fantasy and revelations subverted by time and a culture's collective myopia. This is a verbally exciting debut by a young British poet of real promise.
