Delivering this compact collection of free-form poems, John Kenney projects exactly the type of vocal strength and irony needed to make his writing come alive. He may have written these hilarious vignettes and vivid observations, but he reads in a way that stands back from them and sounds very secure--a sure formula for drawing listeners into his world. Most of his poems' appeal is owed to his uncanny ability to capture the dialogue and dynamics that go on in families with children. These are brutally frank conversations about sex in the context of middle-of-the-night baby feedings, struggles for free time, exhaustion, and fighting feelings of failure as a parent. Pushed into the must-hear category by Kenney's performance, this is a smile-a-minute listen that you'll want to share with every parent you know.
