S plit

Stephen Bett’s previous book, anti-misogynist spoof poems about the soft porn industry, sold out its first print run within a few months — also the first Canadian book published by this particular prestigious NYC literary publisher.

Bett’s new, tenth, book of poetry, S PLIT, is divided into three sections: “Split-Up” concerns relationship; “Split-All-Over” is fuelled by angst and the poet’s customary satire; “Split-Down” makes a tender good-bye to marriage. This is a deeply personal book; poet “split” all over the emotional map.

“(These poems) are soooo delicious. Mouthwatering. Tingling….so bitter, so sharp, so sad. Such beautiful work. I am absolutely stunned.”
