A cheaper book by Mike Topp
A more expensive one, with user reviews!
Mike Topp is a disablingly funny writer–a miniaturist of nervous precisions, our supreme abridger of metropolitan startlement and inner fidgetry. He dazes and graces us.
Gary Lutz, author of Stories in the Worst Way
Mike Topp asked me to write a blurb for his book. I thought about it, but then decided Mike Topp should be writing his own blurbs. Nobody writes better in fewer words than Mike Topp. Nobody. Mike Topp creates worlds in seven words, sometimes six.
Paul Maliszewski, author of Prayer and Parable
Other praise for Mike Topp from Eileen Myles
Just when I think Mike Topp’s poems are funny, they’re wise. Just when I think they’re wise, they’re bad. Just when I think they’re bad, they’re great. Mike Topp’s poems are exactly like the world.
