    1 thought on “Pitch Lake

    1. Pitch Lake, like much of Andre Bagoo's poetry is a beautiful piece of work. I read Andre's first 2 books and I have read fragments of Pitch Lake. From what I have seen of this wonderful book so far, I think this is his best yet! Pitching surrealism and realism together with little effort. Pitch Lake reads like a series of dreams (based on what I have seen so far.) Read it. You won't regret.
