Author: Matt Cook
Publisher: Manic D Press (2007)
Perfect for people who “don’t like poetry,” Matt Cook’s distinctive writing is Midwestern yet worldly, rooted yet bohemian. His close observations result in poems that resemble a series of punk fortune cookies, a kind of psychedelic horse sense—discovering musicality and humor in cultural information, in family, in writing itself.
“Not long ago one of Milwaukee poetry’s young turks, Cook is now simply one of the city’s major poets.”
