Brouwer's work does the opposite of what I expect from an academic press. t sparkles, hypnotizes, connects, and squeezes juice out of the poet's life and into your funny bone." - Kevin Sampsell "In an economy bouyed on the stock margins of companies...poet Joel Brouwer's new book captures the spirit of this gilded age. There's a magic here, the kind that hard work reveals." -- Kevin Ducey "There are no trick mirrors here. No hocus pocus. Brouwer's poems are beautifully exact. They are verbal sleights of hand that cause the mind to blink." -- S. K. Carew
