Book Overview

The struggle from late youth on, with and without God, agony, narcotics and love is a torment rarely recorded with such sustained eloquence and passion as you will find in this collection. --Fanny Howe

This highly-anticipated debut boldly confronts addiction and courses the strenuous path of recovery, beginning in the wilds of the mind. Poems confront craving, control, the constant battle of alcoholism and sobriety, and the questioning of the self and its instincts within the context of this never-ending fight.

From Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before Sometimes you just have to leave
whatever's real to you, you have to clomp

through fields and kick the caps off

all the toadstools. Sometimes
you have to march all the way to Galilee

or the literal foot of God himself before you realize

you've already passed the place where
you were supposed to die. I can no longer remember

the being afraid, only that it came to an end.
