Item description for Shake by Joshua Beckman...

Beckman's new poems come to us directly and intimately. Compulsively readable, full of fear and persistence, they resonate with the wildness and generosity of Ginsberg, Whitman, and Ted Berrigan, turning the everyday into an encompassing, harrowing, humorous, necessary vision. Beckman is, as Publishers Weekly notes, "the real thing."

Joshua Beckman is the author of three previous poetry collections and has appeared on the nationally syndicated NPR programs The Next Big Thing and Bookworm with Michael Silverblatt. His numerous awards include a NYFA Fellowship and a Pushcart Prize. He lives in Seattle and New York.
