Broetry

As contemporary poets sing the glories of birds, birch trees, and menstruation, regular guys are left scratching their heads. Who can speak for Everyman? Who will articulate his love for Xbox 360, for Mama Celeste's frozen pizza, for the cinematic oeuvre of Bruce Willis?

Enter Broetry-a stunning debut from a dazzling new literary voice. "Broet Laureate" Brian McGackin goes where no poet has gone before-to Star Wars conventions, to frat parties, to video game tournaments, and beyond. With poems like "Ode to That Girl I Dated for, Like, a Month Sophomore Year" and "My Friends Who Don't Have Student Loans," we follow the Bro from his high school graduation and college experience through a "quarter-life crisis" and beyond.

Brian McGackin has degrees from Emerson College and the University of Southern California. He lives in Los Angeles. This is his first book.

I heard your story over the weekend on NPR. The passages you read made me smile. I will definitely pick up a copy for my two nephews.

Legend- wait for it and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the next half of the word is DAIRY!
