Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his outrageous debut volume, poetry slam champ Matt Cook tackles American history (President Garfield), personal history (The Way I Tie My Shoes), literary history (James Joyce), and other topics. Quirky and humorous, with a subtext of social commentary, Cooks writing is for people who think they hate poetry and for those who love it. Matt Cooks poetry has been featured in the PBS documentary The United States of Poetry, and on NPRs Fresh Air. A shrewd blend of the cracker-barrel philosopher and an over-caffeinated Groucho Marx. Milwaukee magazine

Synopsis:

In this debut volume of engaging poetry, Cook tackles American history ("President Garfield"), personal history ("The Way I Tie My Shoes"), and literary history ("James Joyce"), among other topics. His vision is that of the blue-collar Midwest, observing life perceptively in bars, his neighborhood, and at work. Quirky and humorous, with a subtext of serious social commentary, Cook's writing is for people who think they hate poetry (and for those who love it, too).
