Format: Paperback
Mike Doughty is a master of wordplay and unique rythym patterns. His style both reveals his new york influences and his associations with other NY poets and musicians, but is still totally unique and distinctive. He had been printing and selling copies of this collection for quite a while, but I'm glad to see that Soft Skull has done it justice. Folks familiar with other Soft Skull poets like Todd Colby (who Doughty once referred to as a "New Jack Quasimodo") or John S. Hall will be into this, though Doughty is much more a "serious" poet than either of those men, there is much dark humor abound in Slanky. And if you love Soul Coughing or Doughty's solo records, you'll definitely be into this. you can't read these poems with out hearing his voice in them. This is a very interesting book, kids.

If you love discovering the beauty of language, you will adore this book. Even though I know every word by heart, I still pour over the pages. I promise, this book will not dissapoint.

Im a Doughty fan and this is just more to love! I also would like to suggest reading his memoir "The Book Of Drugs"!
