In Greg Santos's Rabbit Punch!, Marco Polo reminisces on his friendship with Kublai Khan over deli sandwiches, Wilfred Owen and Ernest Hemingway trade war stories at Hooters, and Senator John McCain remembers that fateful day when his father took him to eat bubble gum ice cream. With punchy poems that are intimate, dark, enigmatic, playful, and surreal, peppered with pop culture figures ranging from Batman, to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Paris Hilton to 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, Rabbit Punch! delivers a poetic KO.

Greg Santos is the author of The Emperor's Sofa (DC Books). He holds an MFA in Creative Writing from The New School in Manhattan. Greg is a poetry editor for carte blanche and teaches the art of verse to at-risk youth. He lives in Montreal with his wife and two children.

'Overall, Greg Santos' work in Rabbit Punch! is a solid mashup of campy wit and a tethering darkness where, one minute, you can be having lunch with Marco Polo and then skipping church to get smashed with Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot at Hooters, only to wake up next to Tara Reid the following morning, contemplating the theory of the universe. Just remember to wear the boxing gloves...' -- Jet Fuel, 2020
