Bibbins operates on a curve that tends upwards, carrying all of us with it. This book moves beyond the familiar tropes of sarcasm and irony that inundate us on a daily basis to reach a feverish beauty. Viciously funny and despairingly thoughtful, THEY DON'T KILL YOU will fill your life before becoming it.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By James Kelly on November 15, 2014
Contemporary poetry sometimes is lacking in playfulness and humor. The poems of Mark Bibbins are playful and funny, even at their darkest and most important. Publishers Weekly chose this book as one of the best poetry books of 2014 and it's easy to see why. It has a lot to say about our age of information bombardment and is highly recommended.
