5.0 out of 5 stars Great performance poetry that's also great on the page., May 8, 2001
This review is from: Alibi School (Paperback)
More than any other poet I know, Jeffrey McDaniel proves that the phrase "good slam poetry" is NOT an oxymoron. In performance, McDaniel is unforgettable, yet his poetry is every bit as fresh, exciting and powerful on the page as it is read aloud. Jeff knows how to tie both language and logic into hiliarious, surrealistic knots, and how to plant little linguistic bombs that explode in almost every sentence. Yet his work also has a deep underlying seriousness, a disgust with the absurdity and petty cruelty of daily existence, which keeps it from being merely clever. If you are interested in getting acquainted with the best of America's younger poets, and if you like Beat poetry with a rock'n'roll edge, Jeff McDaniel's work is an excellent place to start.
