The Emperor's Sofa
The Emperor’s Sofa is a sprawling gift of outrageous artifice, a world of Mad Magazine intensity enriched by Ashberyian ironies and McGimpseyian pleasures. Santos imagines a poetic land of deranged heroes and unmasked anti-heroic marvels – funny, poignant, and profound. Behind the façade of the Emperor’s restless opulence stands this collection’s insight; a new poetics has landed, after the wars – a copious Montreal Style of styles, where, from its royal mount, 'the view is indeed magnificent.' This marks the spot where a brilliant poet debuts – fully cognizant of the clash between the trashy new and the zany old, and of all the useless beauty in between.
— Todd Swift
I read and loved The Emperor's Sofa. Then I went back and read all the "Emperor" poems again. Greg Santos hit this really wonderful tone in those poems – vulnerable but strong, beautiful but heartbreaking, lonely but full of love.
— Michael Kimball, author of Us and Dear Everybody
