Book Description

In a digital edition for the first time, the Scarred Edition of the Troublesome Amputee pairs the multi-award nominated collection with Lawson's out of print debut: The Scars Are Complimentary. Includes all 20 original illustrations from the respective collections.

"I believe I am now a Lawson convert. The Troublesome Amputee has opened my eyes to new possibilities in poetry, and I am eager to seek out more of his work. Lawson has a way of getting under my skin with his words, making them memorable long after the pages have closed. That said, I wouldn't recommend reading many of the poems in one sitting; there are so many ideas and images that come so quickly that I needed time in between readings to process things properly. Too much is bound lead to some sort of mental or emotional overload." -Somebody Dies

"There are few books like this one. Even within the new and growing Bizarro movement Lawson has released a book full literary razorblades in the form of poetry. Lawson’s work shines through the whole spectrum, including funny, sad, morbid, disgusting and meaningful poems." -Monster Librarian

“Mr. Lawson makes a good case for himself as a poet. He comes on like Catholicism, Palahniuk, and Lovecraft on bad acid." -Skullring.org

"Reflective and, at times, philosophical. Lawson's use of language is accomplished and often very evocative." -HorrorScope

"Did somebody say ‘crazy poetry’? I am actually running out at 5 p.m. today and finding myself a copy of John Edward Lawson's The Troublesome Amputee." -Bookgasm

"Lawson proves he’s a poet to reckon with…The Troublesome Amputee not only confirmed John Edward Lawson as a triple threat (editor, poet, writer of fiction), but shows why he's among the leading pioneers of the Bizarro genre." -Midwest Book Review
