“If the title doesn't describe you, you need to read this book. Not an easy breezy beach read, at all. Read it like a memoir/novel/story and the poems flow together into a narrative of an experience we middle class Americans like to think our country has grown out of (it hasn't). The chance to see through someone else's eyes is invaluable, and there are turns of phrase that will stick with you and make you really think.”
