About the Author
Underground poet Joel Landmine was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. He got his start at the now-defunct Tenderloin Reading Series, and has been a mainstay of the Anger Management & Revenge and Bitches’ Brew Reading series. He has been a featured reader at San Francisco’s Litquake festival five years running, and Oakland’s Beast Crawl festival, as well as countless other Bay Area reading series. He has begrudgingly survived several near-death experiences. He lives with his cat in Oakland, CA. This is his first collection of poetry.

So we have ways of dealing with that. Like if someone asks, what did you think of my poetry? (Or comedy set or storytelling gig...) We twist it a bit, with an answer like, ...you're here, it's great to see you... so then we aren't lying, we're just focusing on another aspect and using the word "great."
"Yeah, Well..." is great. No fancy footing. The energies and/or gods of comedy and literature are appeased. I don't mess with them.
I don't like 95% of poetry, but there are a few in SF who are in the top 1% for contemporary American poets. Joel is in the 1%.
Oh, not sure on his politics or economic situation, not that one percent, the other one.
I can't explain it better than that. Read this book, you'll get it.
From the first poem to the last, Joel Landmine's book is a real pleasure to peruse and chock full of the kinds of life lessons that can only be gained from first-hand experiences and then having the mental acuity to truly learn from them.
Between these covers, there's laughter, tears, truthful reflection, ennui, and a sense of learning from a life fully lived.
I have now read this book so many times, I've actually lost count. Yes, because it's that good.
