Skinny Dipping in Daylight is the first published collection of poetry and prose from painter, filmmaker and musician Cory Basil. Offering readers an intimate and unvarnished view, revealing the experiences and fractures of a young artist in the forge of life.
At once subjective and universal, Daylight exposes the tenderizing drum beats of lives in motion: heartbreak, hope, divorce, God, death. The poems lay bare his and our own vanquished dreams, lost loves, missed chances, our abandoned quests. At once romance, travelogue, love letter and kiss off to the naiveté of youth, Basil ultimately gives voice to the difficult journey from revelation to just plain reveling in one's peculiar existence as a living anachronism.
