Poetry. Humor. California Interest. "In this raucous follow-up to their highly praised debut of collaborative poetry, POETS' GUIDE TO AMERICA, Buckley & Ott set their sights on our relationship with TV. Everything is fair game with this duo, whose work combines humor, irreverence, and speculative flights of fancy to examine a culture enamored with the documentation of its identity. 'Surely there's never been a better book of poetry about television.'"—Campbell McGrath

About the Author
A recent graduate of the Helen Zell Writers Program at the University of Michigan, John F. Buckley has been writing poetry since an attempt at writing a self-help book went somewhat awry. After a twenty-year stint on and near the West Coast, he now lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan with his wife.
Martin Ott lives in Los Angeles, where he writes often about his misunderstood city. He is the author of two books of poetry, Underdays (Notre Dame University Press, 2015), and CAPTIVE (C&R Press); and co-author with John F. Buckley of two others: YANKEE BROADCAST NETWORK (Brooklyn Arts Press, 2014), and POETS' GUIDE TO AMERICA (Brooklyn Arts Press, 2012). In 2013, he published the novel The Interrogator's Notebook (Story Merchant Books).
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Given To Me For An Honest Review Yankee Broadcast Network by John F. Buckley and Martin Ott is a book that really is a must read. This is a poetry book that is about television. The poems that you find inside will make you smile, giggle and outright belly laugh. The more you read, the more you find yourself laughing. I enjoyed reading this book so much. I tried to pick my most favorite poem but couldn't. I was able to pick three that I really enjoyed. They are: David Lister Versus The Remote, Repairman, TV Dinner Theater. I don't which was funnier. I loved them. I gave this book 5 stars but they really deserve more that that. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I really look forward to more from John F. Buckley and Martin Ott.
