About this product
- DescriptionHored as a Best Poetry Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly The book's a little crazy, packed with air quotes and brackets, jokes and condemnations, forms that explode across the page. Crazily eugh, it's also packed with truth. NPR The voice of this third book from Bibbins is marked and numbed by the onslaught of American media and politics that saturate the Internet, television, radio, and smartphone: the way things are going, children/ will have to upgrade to more amusing. Much like advertisements or news stories vying for viewer s attention, the book intentionally overwhelms, eschewing sections; the author instead differentiates the poems by repetition, creating a sort of echo chamber, similar to the way viral information cycles through social media platforms. Publishers Weekly, starred review [A] hilarious send-up of contemporary values and an alarm bell of sorts, directing attention to all that is so sinister in our civilization. American Poets Whip-smart and wickedly funny, They Don't Kill You is Bibbins's most authoritative and self-possessed collection to date. Boston Review The poems in Mark Bibbins's breakthrough third book are formally invative and socially alert. Roving across the weird human landscape of modern politics, media-exacerbated absurdity, and questionable social conventions, this collection counters dread with wit, chaos with clarity, and reminds us that suffering is small//compared to what? Mark Bibbins teaches in the graduate writing programs at The New School and Columbia University, and edits the poetry section of The Awl. He lives in New York City.
