Armored Elevator Ryan Daley BlazeVOX [books]

In ARMORED ELEVATOR, Ryan Daley writes like a traveler who's never seen an airport in his life. Opening a crummy suitcase, he "release(s) the Diaspora / from the citation" it received in an outré lewd" fist fight and goes fugitive. The Earth we wander with him is "a wormy bot" where Jeremiad morphs into "the new jingo" and "there's no ice cream to cry into." But fear not! Daley speaks the pidgin of many a safe haven and after hours joint. A bad fit for the "coterie of alphabetical choir guys," he's our best hope for finding the real murderer. 

–Michael Magee

Ryan Daley is a dedicated dodgem of syntax. He is a multi kulti Mayan in Newark whose wit’s as Pan-American as any Jose O’Shay’s. He knows dystopias no longer wash unless in global neo-glot soup spracht. Armored Elevator is one of the best—certainly the edgiest—first books I’ve read in quite awhile.

–Michael Gizzi

Ryan Daley writes poems and lives in Providence, Rhode Island, and attends Brown University, where he is an M.F.A. candidate in Creative Writing. He is the Managing Editor of Combo Magazine. His work has previously appeared in Spindrifter, canwehaveourballback?, , and has upcoming work in Shampoo.
