Kevin Donihe has been involved with the bizarro genre since its inception. In my opinion, he is the genre's most underrated author. All of his books are fantastic, but they rarely get the readership they deserve (with the possible exception of his recent novel, Night of the A**holes, which is due to its irresistible concept). My first exposure to his work was in his first novel, Shall We Gather in the Garden?, which left me impressed. Soon after, I experienced a massive coincidence when a man sold me a copy of the first issue of his literary journal and Donihe's work was included in it. The journal was called Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens and I consider Kevin's participation with it a massive coincidence considering he was so obscure at the time. Later, I would take over the editorship of the journal and frequently publish his work. In fact, many of the poems in this book originally appeared in Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens. Considering I am overly fussy about the material that I choose to publish in my journal, I consider my prior publication of it a ringing endorsement. This book is great. I had a wonderful time re-experiencing the poems that I published so long ago and reading ones that were unfamiliar to me. The poems will appeal to those who aren't particularly fond of poetry along with connoisseurs of the art form. Most of the poems are humorous and narrative-based. They share a commonality with the prose poems of Russell Edson due to their content often being unreal. I was also reminded of James Tate's recent prose poems of absurdity. The majority of the book is written in verse while some of the poems consist of prose. During his verse poems, he always seems to end his lines at a point which enhance the poems in their entirety. If you are interested in the writing of Kevin Donihe, buy this book. If you are fond of poetry and are interested in the bizarro genre, buy this book. If you dislike poetry and have an overwhelming urge to radically change your viewpoint about it, buy this book.
