Mary QuattlebaumIn this novel-in-poems, author Ron Koertge successfully couples the tension and drive of a good story with the imagery and compression of fine poetry. He cuts against the stereotypes of dumb jocks and Goth poets to create a smart, every-guy protagonist whose down-to-earth voice and contemporary concerns refresh centuries-old poetic forms such as the villanelle, couplet, limerick and haiku. With this book, Koertge steps up to the plate—two outs, bases loaded—and stylistically knocks it out of the park.
