Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. If there were an award for chapbook of the year it would surely be given to BY MYSELF: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. In the spirit of Goethe's comment, "One is never satisfied with the portrait of a person one knows," two celebrated poets, D.A. Powell and David Trinidad, have collaborated to create a perfect portrait of an unknown star in 300 lines by taking one sentence from each of 300 celebrity autobiographies. The result is poignant, poetic, and hilarious--a perfect and imperishable performance.

Synopsis:

A daring collaborative celebrity autobiography by two of America's finest poets, D.A. Powell and David Trinidad
