Don't Ask Me to Clean Up the Basement

Paperback of the best books I have read in a long time, an undogmatic manifesto that's anarchistic, funny, and mad. It's so good I'm grateful to it, didn't want it to end. Everything about this book -- its energy, fierce comic wisdom, its stuffed and muscled lines -- fills me with wonder ...the poems are willfully raw and honest, compelled by defiance, joy, anger and a wild white-light hope ...I have never read a book that took Whitman further and took me, exhilarated, out of myself and into that traffic jam, the mess of humanity. -- Margaret Sweatman, Books in Canada
