About Post Moxie:

"Poems that think this carefully and provocatively about themselves are scarce. But that's no reason to read a person's poems. The misery and the total enchantment of being alive, of being a complex person, mysterious even to oneself, and of feeling like a cliché, of drawing from art and despising art, of thinking simultaneously ‘fuck this’ and ‘bring me more’—that's what got put into this book, and that's what we get out of it."
—Dan Chiasson
