Editorial Reviews

"Ah, yes-in one of these new prose poems, a mere 10,000 people turn out for a poetry reading because there was no publicity and it's also the night that Elvis returns from the grave. Isn't it always that way? Charles Harper Webb's work continues to dazzle, and this time the fire that startles and delights us is generated by the friction between the way the world is and the way people want it to be. A whiny roast beef complains, 'You treat me like a piece of meat,' and a rat can't get elected to office because people say 'don't trust that rat' and 'what a rat.' But Webb is more powerful than Elvis dead or alive, and he fights this literalness with powerful alchemy-what are the philosopher's stone and the universal solvent, compared to hot popsicles?"—David Kirby, poet, writer for the New York Times, and W. Guy McKenzie professor of English at Florida State University
