During 2014, Wave Books editor Joshua Beckman traveled around the country giving lectures on poetry. In part one of this two-part collection, he includes three variations of a talk that illuminates the intimate experience of making a particular set of his poems. In part two he explores the fluid and social dynamics of poetry as it lives between readers, poems, and books.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Beckman wistfully takes to the road and does the incredible work of writing poems full of desire, for a world in the midst of radical upheaval."--Publishers Weekly


"If you take a broad squint at our nation's new poets you can find two general strategies: poets who are carrying the torch, and poets who are using it to start fires. And then we have Joshua Beckman. He seems to be doing everything."--Daniel Handler, The Believer

"Beckman's soulful theatrics...have taken the humorous lyric to new heights, but perhaps less readily appreciated is Beckman's mastery, not just of the quotidian, but of the tragic."--Virginia Konchan, Rattle
