Synopses & Reviews
Whether Jeffrey McDaniel is denouncing insomnia (4,000 A.M.), exploring family tragedy (Ghost Townhouse), or celebrating love and lust (The Biology of Numbers), his writing is original and provocative. A noted poet, McDaniel has appeared on ABCs Nightline and NPRs Talk of the Nation. Wild, fierce, irreverent, full of praise and lament, and deeply, intensely human. Thomas Lux
McDaniel's third collection of poetry is filled with stunning scenes, eerie self-portraits and love poems pulled tendon-tight. He distills his metaphors into dense, concentrated, intoxicating lines that resonate with passionate desperation. His fine mixture of sensitivity, amiable charm, and an arid, dangerous wit permeate every poem.
