Joshua Seigal is renowned as a children's poet and performer. In this, his first collection for adults, he tackles growing up and dumbing down. Tender poems about childhood and family mingle with highly irreverent performance pieces honed on the spoken word and stand up comedy circuits. Seigal's poetry conveys an infatuation with the intricacy and possibility of words, and issues of Love and Loathing are dealt with in equal measure.
