Poets' Guide to America by John F. Buckley, Martin Ott

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

Martin Ott is a former U.S. Army interrogator who lives in Los Angeles where he writes poetry and fiction, often about his misunderstood city.
