Review

“Tim Seibles chronicles his evolution from innocence to adulthood in Fast Animal…[E]ach experience is keenly observed and shapes his growing sense of identity and an exquisite awareness of the things all humans share.”

I like contemporary poetry that is honest--like "two guys sitting in a coffee shop shooting the breeze about their lives with nothing else to do" honest. No holds barred. No topics taboo. No one out to be offended; just guys talking. That's what I found here. Tim Seibles has led an interesting life. It is wonderful that he's a poet and knows not to let a single, seemingly insignificant or maybe even embarrassing detail of that life slip away. "Delores Jepps" is a good example. It's a reflection of a teenaged crush, which is common enough. But the way he writes about it is so honest, so open, so absent of pretentious or the million-and-one cliched formulas that hover around the topic like gnats, that I totally believe him. Better yet, I'm grateful to him for pointing to a door to my own, similar experiences when I was that age. No wonder this book was a finalist for the National Book Award. I may not be able to give it any rewards, but I'll be happy to pay for that coffee.

Thoughtful and challenging. I know how difficult it is to write non-rhyming poetry. Also enjoyed talking to him. Straight forward and no BS.

Tim Seibles' words are sexy, smooth, funny and moving. Some of his gorgeous phrases from past books have stuck with me for years. This is poetry for people who don't think they like poetry - it's more like jazz with words rather than musical notes. Beautiful stuff.
