Poetry. Illustrated by Noah Miller. "Our consciousness needs a new conscience: human consciousness needs a new keel. Some of its lines of design may be found in Miller's poetry"--Sam Truitt, American Book Review. "Conversational fluidity and unstrained syntax enable Miller to address politics, current events, theoretical concerns, and personal experience with critical acumen"--Barbara K. Fischer, Boston Review. "Lively, brainy, probing . . . Miller's erudite, humane, and yes, talky poems are punctuated by young Noah with exuberant drawings"--Joyelle McSweeney, Constant Critic.
Stephen Paul Miller is also the author of The Seventies Now: Culture as Surveillance (Duke University Press), The Bee Flies in May (Marsh Hawk Press) Skinny Eighth Avenue (Marsh Hawk Press), and Art Is Boring for the Same Reason We Stayed in Vietnam (Domestic), and he co-edited a collection of essays for the National Poetry Foundation.
