Description

Alan Kaufman is the author of several books of poetry including American Cruiser (Zeitgeist Press) and Horseman of the Apocalypse (Cyborg Productions), as well as the memoirs Jew Boy (FSG) and Drunken Angel (Viva Editions). He is the editor of the acclaimed anthologies The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry and The Outlaw Bible of American Literature (Basic Books).

This collection of poetry is one of several printed and published by Last Word Press this year and we're excited for you to read it. Kaufman is a direct descendant of the Beats and the Nuyorican poets. His acerbic voice and imagery will resonate with readers, touching the underbelly of post-modern America.

Straight Jacket Elegies is both an homage to David Lerner, and a testament of survival. It is a time capsule into the hopelessness of the era of Reagan, when epidemics stood on every street corner declaiming the falsehood of a shining city on the hill and the decaying of the American Dream. But it is also a call to arms for all the poets and lunatics and lovers in the world to speak up, to shout to the heavens, to survive by any means necessary. Perfect-bound paperback. Brand New; satisfaction guaranteed.
