If Ron Padgett is American poetry’s Peter Pan, Nick Flynn .

If Ron Padgett is American poetry’s Peter Pan, Nick Flynn, in his latest collection, My Feelings, channels the interior growling of a Lost Boy, which should come as no shock to anyone who has marinated in the darkness of Mr. Flynn’s acclaimed memoirs. The agonies and delights of youth never seem too far away for Nick Flynn and Ron Padgett, but it’s interesting to note that the most memorable verses in both books wind up being the ones with a hard-forged insight as their foundation. As Mr. Padgett knows, downtown Manhattan’s no longer a cheap playground for bohemian-dreaming boys like him - or like Richard Hell, for that matter.

The book contains delicate and witty poems. It was also a pleasant surprise to receive my order earlier than expected.

Since the 1960s, Ron Padgett has been writing some of the best, and funniest, and most challenging poetry in the English language. My favourite of his books have been The Tulsa Kid and Toujours L'Amour, but I've loved everything he's written (even the small-press oddity Poems I Guess I Wrote). His direct language, his enthusiasm for goofiness, his smart playfulness -- all this stuff moves me and inspires me.
But with You Never Know, Padgett moves beyond the 10th rung of a 10-rung ladder. He's still nuts, and often hilarious, but this whole mortality thing has got him doing stuff so perfect, so condensed, so magical... geez.
You know, people generally hate poetry. But shove a book like this in their shaking paws and they might have second thoughts.
It's a lovely looking book, too, but it would've looked better mimeographed and stapled down the side with a line drawing by Joe Brainard on the cover.
Yeah! Resoundingly.
