First published in 1985, The Brave Never Write Poetry, the lone collection of poems by critic/novelist Daniel Jones (1959–1994), was a cult hit. Written in a direct, plainspoken, autobiographical and at times confessional style in the tradition of Charles Bukowski and Al Purdy, these confrontational poems about sex and boredom, drugs and suicide, document Jones’ depressive, alcoholic years as an enfant terrible.
