Poetry. Jewish Studies. "Stephen Paul Miller has written the most swingin', rockin', jazzy history of Judaism, Jews, and our favorite one and only God there is, that you will ever read. In verse. And if you read it you will have to think about it. While tapping your foot. And is it unbelievably funny to see this maniac of a poet wrestling with a disembodied spirit aided by Plato and Irving Berlin? That too. With Hitchcock and John Cage wagging the dog? Enter this book, you enter Indie Poetry"—Alicia Ostriker. "Are Stephen Paul Miller's playful lineated essays Midrashic form?"—Thom Donovan.
