Poetry! Poetry! Poetry! in The Midwest Book Review

Hey, look at this:
Poetry! Poetry! Poetry!
Peter Davis
Bloof Books
9780982658703, $16.00
Midwest Book Review

As demonstrated by the pieces that comprise Poetry! Poetry! Poetry!, Peter Davis is a master of the prose poem format. A kind of one-man poetry slam (the titles of his poems are as unusual as the poems themselves), the quality of his work is nothing short of impressive and highly recommended reading, especially for those with an appreciation of his contemporary avant garde style. "Poem That Belligerently Addresses People Who Believe I'm Self-Obsessed Or Something Like That":
Well, you have an enormous ego too. That's why you're reading this, you narcissist! Get over yourself! Sure, you're smart because you get what this poem is about and how cool it is, or you get how crappy this poem is, and you know why, but you're still just another reader. So, don't look at me. You're the one obsessed with yourself!

Get it here...or come see us at one of these places.

On the road with Bloof

We're leaving in the morning. Today, we're feeling giddy.

We may be posting some here and probably to our Facebook group.

We'll definitely be doing some reports from the road as guests on the Best American Poetry Blog. What the hell, we'll even spell check those.

Please note that if you order a book from in the next ten days, it will probably not ship until the 24th. The whole staff will be in the rental car.

Hope to see you out there. Do say hi!

Eeeeeeeek rhymes with next weeeeeeeeek: The final schedule

Ta da! The Bloof Books 2010 Tour Booking Extravaganza c'est fini!

See our events page for the complete schedule, in such high-def all its age spots and enlarged pores are showing (and who told it to wear that fleshtone polo?!?)

Just kidding; it looks FAB.

Oh, and did we mention that these stops are the only opportunities you will have until mid-November to get one of these:

Or one of these (ever)?

If you want one of these, we'll have those too, but you don't have to wait. Just click on over to the Bloof store:

So...are you gonna come see us, or what?
