    Life is unpredictable, carry poetry with you

    For the past six months, I have carried one of Tony Hoagland's poetry chapbooks with me for another perspective of the inanities of life, to smile about the imperfection of our human desire for perfection in the ways that the author shares poem by poem, frame by frame, line by line. His work is wry, honest, troubling and sometimes belly-shaking hilarious.

    Donkey Gospel is good medicine in perfectly-metered doses. Enjoy how revealing and fun poetry can be.

    So Easy To Relate To

    Tony Hoagland writes about you and me, all of us, everyone of us. As I read his book I kept saying out loud, 'Yes' and 'How True'

    Straightforward and smart!

    Tony came to read to my school last year and there was a lot of controversy about one particular poem that he wrote, 'Self-improvement.' The problem was that the teachers took offense because they chose to concentrate on merely the surface of the words, while the students looked deeper into the poem and discovered what he was trying to get across. His work is direct but crafty. Though I have not yet purchased 'Donkey Gospel,' what I have read from the book is outstanding and I highly recommend it to anyone who has an open mind.
