Meet the Vultures: Ben Arzate

Ben is a poet, book reviewer, and all-round good egg.

Hey, Ben! How are you? What was the last thing you ate and what would you rate it out of ten?
I’m okay. The last thing I ate was leftover pizza. I give it a 7 out of 10.

What’s your favourite book?
My favorite book is a toss up between Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities and Hubert Selby Jr.’s Last Exit to Brooklyn.

What drew you to CV?
Seeing authors I enjoy published on CV as well as books I don’t see discussed much elsewhere is what drew me to submit in the first place.

Where else can we find you?
I blog at dripdropdripdropdripdrop.blogspot.com. My poetry chapbook, the sky is black and blue like a battered child, is available on Amazon.

Who would win in a fight: a kangaroo with one punching hand or a crocodile missing half of its teeth?
It depends on where they were fighting. In anywhere but a river or swamp, the kangaroo would win. It could just keep jumping on the crocodile until it won.
