Publisher Comments:

Buddy Wakefield's third book, Gentleman Practice, documents the figurative contents of a man's body attempting to stand firm in the presence of all that is. It's a poetry book, from the perspective of a journal entry in the National Archives. The National Archives live in a building in Seattle behind barbed wire, directly next door to the Center for Spiritual Living. This is no accident. Gentleman Practice is a disarming de-haunting of accidents. There are no stunt doubles performing the honesty in this book. Head raised and victorious, he has crafted a translation of the human spirit on a small, practical patch, with a very fine tooth indeed. And, while many poetry books read like a thick epic series of sections, Gentleman Practice will no doubt rest in your hands like a well-oiled novel.

Buddy Wakefield is one of the most outstanding poets I have heard to date. I couldn't wait for the release of Gentleman Practice! When I got my book I was thrilled to see that Buddy signed it before mailing! It made my day:) I let a friend borrow it, and somehow it disappeared...until my birthday came around and my friend mailed it as a gift. I was so happy, I cried! That's how much this book means to me. I would recommend it to anyone. I've read a lot of books this year, but there are none that compare to Buddy's unique style and impact. I wish him all the best in 2013!
