Poets' Guide to America

Overview


Poetry. "You've stumbled upon the best travelogue you'll ever find...a book for the ages, and for our age and place."—Laura Kasischke

"The tag-team poetry of Buckley and Ott is as much a kin to the works of John Ashbery and Edward Field as it is to the radio skits of George Burns and Gracie Allen. Their euphonious cacophony of wordplay, ingenious turn-of-phrase concoctions, and steady stream of pop/cross-cultural references create an erudite mix of levelheaded nonsense and harebrained smarts."—Paul Fericano

"John F. Buckley and Martin Ott are extremely talented poets, schooled in their craft, who are already well on their way to the 'A List' of their generation, and are thought by many—myself included—to be there already. This comprehensive collection will be on the shelves and in the hands of those readers who endeavor to chart the course of poetic art in our time."—Gerald Locklin

Editorial Reviews

John Gibbs
Buckley and Ott's clarity, sense of humor and piercing tone of originality create a space where unfamiliar readers quickly discover something to love. [This book] is as high brow as it is low brow, which fosters a wide readership. Sometimes it helps to have read Mark Twain. Sometimes it helps to have seen The Dukes of Hazzard. Given what Whitman said of the United States we can assume Buckley and Ott have chosen an apt subject matter for collaboration, rife with both liveliness and tradition.

A former altar boy, John F. Buckley was born and raised in Michigan. He met Martin Ott at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor before migrating to California.
