About the Author

Anis Mojgani is a two time National Poetry Slam Champion and winner of the International World Cup Poetry Slam. A Pushcart Prize Nominee and former resident of the Oregon Literary Arts Writer's-In-The-Schools program, Anis has performed at numerous universities, festivals, and venues around the globe.

This is the book from their most infamous tour. Below is a journal entry from Buddy Wakefield highlighting one of their sweeter moments. This book holds the fantastic poems read on the road. Andrea Gibson sure is glory. Glory glory. Mercy. And no mercy. I swear she eats trumpets. One time she let me write a blurb for her book Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns. I said somethin' like, "Andrea Gibson does not just show up to pluck your heart strings. She sticks around to tune them. If being floored is new to you, ya might wanna grab a cushion. Whatever the opposite of fooling someone is, Andrea does that. Beware of the highway in her grace and the crowbar in her verse.” With Andrea there was the opening show at Lewis & Clark where Timmy Straw (the reason for the poem "Jean Heath”) played piano, and there was running through the rows of trees to Spokane, stocking up on food from her fans to Idaho, and the ghost towns with the writing on the wall and stuffed beavers in the bar, and the joy of heckling her vegan face in the Powell, Wyoming grocery store parking lot, throwing rocks over railroad tracks, breathing life with her onto the stage in Boulder and hearing her poem "Thank Goodness”, and meeting her girlfriend Heather and gasping for breath with them from laughing at Derrick and Anis after the Sigur Ros concert at Red Rocks, where Derrick bought Anis that sweet cash money necklace light and made him wear it.

After being recommended by a friend, I grabbed this book because I love Derrick Brown and Andrea Gibson, and her fervent adoration of Anis Mojgani was enough to convince me. I'm glad I did--the poetry in this book is hard-hitting and powerful in every word choice, even down to the occasional purposeful misspellings. Would recommend to anyone who likes poetry that punches you in the stomach.

Anis Mojgani is a good poet. The book is beautiful with good paper. I have not read many of the poems, yet.

This writer is gifted - or so my son tells me. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because he hasn't finished reading it yet, so it may be unfair of me to punish the writer for my son's lack of sustainability. If your son is into something different; modern poetry from REAL and clever writers, this is for him. For the deep thinking, decent-living teen who sits on the fence about religion, isn't a crowd follower, has his own mind and enjoys cool poetry club now and then.
