5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Campbell Mcgrath on March 27, 2000
Format: Paperback
Glad to see another reader has recommended Bowman's classic first book, 1-800-HOT-RIBS, to all readers. Rock Farm is every bit as good as the first book, and like it is truly a book for general readers and not merely the cloistered acolytes of Poetry Land. Why? It's funny, touching and beautifully written; it mixes biblical cadences with blues riffs, cultural kitsch with enduring human emotions, love and death and all the rest of them. It also brings in a very unique mixed media element, by combining prints and drawings by the poet's mother that help bring the text to life. Hard to see why this most delightful of American poets remains little read while poets of far less talent and far more pretense claim wide audiences. Rock Farm is a great book.
