We Are No Longer The Smart Kids In Class is David Huebert’s first poetry collection, published by Guernica Editions in fall 2015. The book launched in November at the Kensington Supermarket in Toronto and in December at Gus’ Pub in Halifax. Here are a few kind words:
We Are No Longer the Smart Kids in Class is a smart and spirited debut volume. These are bawdy, wryly confessional, warts-and-all poems that celebrate language and love, family and nature, the cerebral and the sensual. Occasionally drunk but always observant, Huebert’s narrators contemplate life’s mysteries with their head in the clouds and their pants around their ankles. A pornographer of the heart, David Huebert shies away from nothing. His voice is authentic and raw and is sure to give the Canadian poetry scene a much needed slap in the face.
— Ian Colford, author of Evidence (The Porcupine’s Quill, 2008) and The Crimes of Hector Tomás (Freehand Books, 2012)
