The hit poetry collection from the creative force behind The Smashing Pumpkins

Having risen to fame during the grunge era in the early nineties, Billy Corgan is among the most respected figures of the alternative rock world-a visionary artist who, more than a decade later, still commands a devoted following. Long admired for his evocative songwriting, Corgan embarks on a deeper exploration of literary terrain as a poet. Full of "the regretful melancholy of his music [and] the rhythmic, angular wordplay of his best Pumpkins lyrics" (Jeff Vrabel, Chicago Sun-Times), the poems in this collection form an imagistic journey through the intensely personal as Corgan throws into sharp relief issues of love, loss, identity, and loyalty. Crafted with a thoughtful and cadenced approach that shares the same allegiance to thunder and quiet found in his music, these writings further solidify Corgan's place as the voice of a generation.

Billy Corgan is the singer and songwriter for the critically acclaimed, multiplatinum Chicago band Smashing Pumpkins. He is currently at work on his first novel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from transforming his poems simply transform you. he is a lyrical genius and an amazing poet. Do keep in mind that they aren't similar whats so ever to the style of how he writes his music. Which was very pleasant to see, but at the same time I was wishing for some to have that same vibe.

Editorial Reviews

"Never just the spectator, Corgan transforms his world into the palpable lyrical beauty of the heartbreak of one who cannot turn away, allowing us to get as close as we dare without blinking." -J. T. LeRoy, author of Sarah and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things
