Why don't more guys read poetry? Because it doesn't speak to them. As contemporary poets tackle subjects like incest, menstruation, and pine cones, regular guys are left scratching their heads. Who can speak for Everyman? Who will give voice to his passions, his fears, his dreams? Who can articulate his love for Xbox 360, for Mama Celeste's Frozen Pizzas, for virtually any movie starring Bruce Willis? Enter Broetry - a stunning debut from a dazzling new literary voice. Broet Laureate Brian McGackin gives voice to the trials and tribulations of today's man. He goes where no poet has gone before - to Star Wars conventions, to frat parties, to video game tournaments and more. His poems include: Reflections on Taylor Swift ; Ode to That Girl I Dated for, Like, Two Month Sophomore Year ; My Friends Who Don't Have Student Loans ; Song of Mama Celeste ; Haikougar ; and, many more. As the poems progress, we follow our Bro from high school graduation and college through a quarter life crisis and beyond. Packaged in a small gifty hardcover and illustrated with tasteful black and white illustrations, Broetry is a funny and sly study of modern masculinity.
