    1. Ishmael Reed is a true global citizen . The poems in this book range from poems about social justice to meditations on art. Reed even writes a few poems in Yoruba and Japanese. But he also stays true to timeless topics, such as loss:"i mean all of us/have had our dreams broken over some/body's head. those scratched phono/graph records of d soul" Reed often looks at issues from different perspectives, giving the reader a chance to see with a new pair of eyes. "But there's two sides to every/story [...]


    2. "the universe is a spiraling big band in a polka-dotted speakeasy effusively generating new light every one night stand" That was the first bit of poetry I ever memorized, and even before finding this book (after patiently waiting for over 11 years for the early books of Reed's to be collected in one spot) I could still recite those lines with immediate recall.


    3. I’m not sure I could name any poet— not even Langston Hughes— whose work interrogates blues forms as effectively as Reed’s. The early works here are more abstract, while later poems are wonderfully earthy, often hilarious, frequently biting in their assessment of national character, and—above all— written to be read aloud, with abandon. An original.


    4. I celebrated Nat Poetry Mo 2013 by attending a reading by Reed in Chattanooga and ended up scoring this book. It's living on top of my bedside shelf and I am cracking it open frequently. I love you, Ishmael Reed! What a jazzman!


    5. I love this book. Reed's poems are both intelligent and inflammatory. Plus, he's from Buffalo, where I live. Tim Russert is too, but he's no where near as cool.



    6. Ishmael Reed's collection is a lesson in rhythm and how to use a refrain in poetry. This collection spans decades, countries, and topics. A bit overwhelming at times, but so very strong.
