Peter Twal

Poet Peter Twal's debut collection, Our Earliest Tattoos, tackles memory and contemporary life with wit, humor and sentimental flair. The poems draw inspiration from lyrics of LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends," which Twal first heard in 2012 and felt an immediate connection to. Throughout the book, he treats the song as an artifact and uses its lyrics to punctuate moments in the lives of his narrators.
