This copy of the talented author's first book - a collection of poetry - has been SIGNED by Paul Beatty on the title page! While it is a second printing, this is a scarce work (more so signed) from this talented author. Published by the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York. Praise by Allen Ginsberg who calls it "humorous, incisive, Americanist." The Village Voice says of it "Paul Beatty's a poet for us kids who grew up on Saturday morning cartoons, video games, and rap, and have a jumble of media bites rattling in our brain cages...Beatty parts the curtain of retro respectable poetry, revealing an image world astrally projected on a hiphop reality trip...Beatty piles word play upon word play in a hyperstack of meaning making him one of the smartest young poets around."
