Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reading Tao Lin is like looking the wrong way down Frank O'Hara's ear trumpet at a 21st century Mayakovski IM-ing Lili Brik. This book is fun, smart, manic and ecstatic; it puts on a clean shirt before it loads the gun.

Review:

"[R]eminiscent of covertly eavesdropping on a private conversation over a cup of hallucinogen-spiked black coffee." Bookslut

Review:

"Tao Lin's poetry collection gracefully proves the theorem that nothing can be truly sad if it isn't also funny." Time Out Chicago

Tao Lin is 23 and lives in New York City. Visit his blog reader-of-depressing-books.blogspot.com.
