One anthology that's not for poetry snobs.

Editor Charles Potts has assembled a number of very talented poets hailing (sort of) from the Pacific Northwest. Some are extremely obscure, others like Sherman Alexie and Bukowski are relatively well-known, and all follow a certain Beatnikish ethos: writing should be spare and powerful, and, yes, pissing, drinking beer and having sex can be as spiritual as any other activity. Which is not to say that that this anthology is all farts and one word lines. Plenty of strastopherically high culture is here, experimentalism, pathos, insight too. Potts lays out his philosophy in the introduction; if you've ever appreciated his work, or that of d.a. levy or Bukowski, you'll enjoy this volume. It will send you scurrying back to the internet to seek out more work by the contributors.
