Praise for David Kirby &quote,Kirby is exuberant, irrepressible, maniacal and remarkably entertaining.... Okay, let me just say it: he is a wonderful poet.&quote, -- Steve Kowit, San Diego Union-Tribune&quote,Kirby's voice and matter (teaching, literature, traveling, rock 'n' roll, everyday bozohood) are utterly personal and, despite all the laughter, ultimately moving.&quote, -- Ray Olson, Booklist&quote,[Kirby] is a poet who peels away the layers of our skin to show us who we are: our weaknesses, our strengths, and our hilarious obsessions.&quote, -- Micah Zevin, New Pages&quote,The world that Kirby takes into his imagination and the one that arises from it merge to become a creation like no other, something like the world we inhabit but funnier and more full of wonder and terror.&quote, -- Philip Levine, Ploughshares&quote,These poems may be too cool for words.&quote, -- Carol Muske-Dukes, New York Times Book ReviewInspired by the carpenter's biscuit joint -- a seamless, undetectable fit between pieces of wood -- David Kirby's latest collection dramatizes the artistic mind as a hidden connection that links the mundane with the remarkable. Even in our most ordinary actions, Kirby shows, there lies a wealth of creative inspiration: &quote,the poem that is written every day if we're there / to read it.&quote,Well known for his garrulous and comic musings, Kirby follows a wandering yet calculated path. In &quote,What's the Plan, Artists?&quote, a girl's yawning in a picture gallery leads him to meditations on subjects as diverse as musical composition, the less-than-beautiful human figure, and &quote,the simple pleasures / of living.&quote, The Biscuit Joint traverses seemingly random thoughts so methodically that the journey from beginning to end always proves satisfying and surprising.
