Hearts Amok

Kevin Spenst

In language that twists together hobo slang and flights of troubadourish diction, Hearts Amok: A Memoir in Verse scrutinizes the history of the love sonnet in Surrey, England and simultaneously celebrates the tickings and tollings of one love-struck heart in Surrey, British Columbia. Examining the underpinnings of love, this book journeys from the Middle Ages to the present where Pushcart Prize nominee Kevin Spenst dates his way through Vancouver to finally find the love of his life.
