Comment: This book has already been loved by someone else. It MIGHT have some wear and tear on the edges, have some markings in it, or be an ex-library book. Over-all it is still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

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"!

Let me just say this. I have a signed copy of Slanky... from when I presented it to Mike to sign after one of the several times I've met him, and that signature is now gracing my arm, included in a lovely (if I do say so myself) Doughty inspired tattoo of my own design. I'm not even huge on poetry, traditionally, but this collection is beautiful. Doughty is a wordsmith, and you will definitely feel what he was feeling, on each page. Some of it's magic, and some of it's tragic, he assures you of that. It's great. Don't miss this one.
