Riassunto: David Hill offers quirky perspectives on life, love, and globalization in his first book of poems to be published in the United States. A journalist whose normal beat is international economy and culture, Hill is known to readers of his poetry as, in the words of Light Quarterly (Chicago), "a polylingual perversely talented poet, [who] does devilishly contrived things with the language. He's raunchy, unsolemn, and very funny." "David Hill makes the everyday surreal-and writes unashamedly and delightfully about love. Imagine a shape-shifter, a spinner of yarns, a poet from Transylvania via the U.S. and leafy England, whose poems are small gothic tales of lost dogs, lovesick girls, royal houses gone to pot, celebrities in domestic situation comedies, vampires in the belfry, menopausal women and much more."--Rosemary Dun, founder and host, Big Mouth Poetry

Review: "Poet David Hill has been making a reputation for himself as a comic genius, and indeed, many of the poems in his new book Consumed are wickedly funny. But it's the sentimentality, hidden deep in the chatter about globalization, that will sideswipe and eventually trap you." - Willamette Week online

"Easily digested and often unpredictably comical, Hill's poems range from witty insights to imagined monologues. Riffing on a number of well-known characters and introducing some new ones as well, Hill provides his readers with everything from a reminiscent Romeo caught in the tedium of married life, to an overworked, underappreciated member of the Three Tenors, to the pitifully indulgent boyfriend of a London drug addict (...) it is his ability to find the truth, and often the humor, in everyday situations that makes his poetry so enjoyable." - PDX Magazine

"Hill offers a fantastically funny view on people consumed by lust, by money, by food, and how they consume those things." - Indigo Editing

"His poems, always musical and elegant, are never boring (...) the poems are not hard to understand: they are fast-paced, hot and urgent, like rock songs, but also provoking further readings which then show their carefully constructed architecture (...) he has created a uniquely tender, sharp, funny style of his own, infused with witty word-play, self-deprecating irony and with searing punch lines. (...) Consumed contains almost seventy poems (...) David Hill won't let us escape: we must sense the unbearable lightness of being, and what's more, we must laugh at it." - The Hungarian Quarterly
