Item description for No Planets Strike by Josh Bell...

No Planets Strike, the debut collection by Josh Bell, reads as a playfully serious record of modernity. Subversive in their treatment of the contemporary voice, broad in their subject matter, and often delightfully funny, the poems in this collection have a brilliant ear language.

Reviews - What do customers think about No Planets Strike?

Indiana Hidden Treasure  Dec 31, 2007
I remember this guy from my childhood. we sort of grew up together. I bought the book for that reason, but after reading it I have to say even if you don't share any childhood memories with Joshua Bell, you should buy this book. it's worth it.
A girl like you once showed me how the moon committed suicide.  Feb 24, 2007
Josh Bell's No Planets Strike is as beautiful as it is frightening. Bell takes his title from Shakespeare's Hamlet, and seems to take on the perspectives of characters like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, and the two spear-carriers standing at the edge of the stage--that is, this book is about "minor characters;" there are no heroes here, only the "normal," and justly so, Bell dissects, in his poetry, our own unspoken view points on unrequited love and male sexuality with humor and a deft understanding of language. Bell writes to us in "series poems," where we get to see what it was like to sleep with Artemus and Julia Roberts in the same book, and we get a whole new defenition of "muse" with overtly cruel and unapologetic Ramona. I celebrate Josh's great book, and I think that we're going to hear from him again.
Poems to Write Home About & Call Everyone You Know  Feb 6, 2006
No Planets Strike is an indelible collection. Sometimes you order a poetry book and it turns out only one or two poems rock, and some are okay and the others blow. Not so for this book: every poem astounds with moxie and prowl. It's a page-turner. It's a must-have.
Writes so well he'll make you jealous.  Feb 24, 2005
I've been waiting for this collection of poems to come out for years. Josh Bell is an incredibly ambitious, hysterically funny, and deeply literary poet (and he is never pretentious). Reading his poems will make you laugh out loud. If you're a poet, reading his poems will inspire you to write, simply because he consistently shows the phenomenal things the English language can be made to do. An absolute must-read, it's sure to become a classic.
