Dismantled Secrets confirms Berger's remarkable dexterity with language and poetic form. Drawing on Dylan Thomas's invitation to play with literary devices and inspired by the work of surrealist painter Rene Magritte, Berger juxtaposes ordinary objects with unusual contexts to achieve extraordinary and thought-provoking results. Each poem in this collection is a spectacle - whether of light or dark - that pulses with energy, drama and a true sense of the absurd.
