Synopses & Reviews
"Christopher Cahill's poems will keep you on your toes with their exciting mix of lust and formality, their happy shuffling together of curb-talk and cultured discourse. The selections in The Drug of Choice are a guaranteed buzz, and some are strong enough to get you off for days."Billy Collins
"Christopher Cahill has reinvented the Roman erotic elegy for modern New York; lust, rage, and longing are given play in verse that ranges from the raw to the exquisitely formal."Ed Conlon
The Drug of Choice is a lush and lacerating debut collection. Christopher Cahill's poems are intensely seductive and inventively disquieting.
The welt, the welter, the long black veil of long black hair, sexwedded and unwedded, the dead, New York.
