Thank You, Mr. Young

[M]ost books about writing are filled with bullshit.
–Stephen King

True, that. Except in the case of Dean Young’s The Art of Recklessness, Poetry as Assertive Force and Contradiction (I know, it’s been in print since 2010 – a decade in internet years – but perhaps it flew under your radar as well). Free of prescription, proscription, self-help-isms, grenade-lobbing, and, thank god, Zen, it is one of those rare books that – for writers and readers of poetry – hits the RESET button.

Thank You, Mr. Young
