Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As with all of Hudgins+ work, the enthralling narratives and simple verse transcend class and geography, but Shut Up+s best feature is the combined didactic value of its title and its speakers+ perspectives."-Washington City Paper

"[A] compelling and hilariously offensive little book."-January magazine

Praise for Andrew Hudgins and Barry Moser:
"Andrew Hudgins is a natural storyteller. . . . The surface of Hudgin's poems-their quirky economy, the sheer music of his prosody-are so right because he goes so deep."-The Washington Post

"Moser's work is never less than dazzling."-Newsweek
