Remarkably engaging, literate, provocative and funny poems by acclaimed Chicago poet J.J. Tindall, selected from his residency at the Beachwood Reporter, Chicago's most distinguished online journal of politics and culture. "Gifted lyric-ranconteur J.J. Tindall's style is pure quicksilver. It glides unpredictably from ecstatic Beat testimony to Raymond Carver-esque elevation of the ordinary to the sublime." Listen.com "Low on pretension and high on conversational accessibility. Similar artists: Charles Bukowski, Jim Carroll."
