Poetry. This debut collection is a case study, a documentation, a journaling. It's a bunch of poems about girls, sex, cigarettes, PBR, and everything else that is the world of hip. It is the winner of the Michael Rubin Book Award. "There is a real zest in these poems.... Lichtenberg's joy in the everyday reminds me of the daily pleasures as Frank O'Hara embraced them"--John Skoyles, author of The Situation and poetry editor of Ploughshares. "Whether riding the subway or 'talking shit about a pretty sunset,' his is a highly entertaining new voice that will win you over with its combination of disarming simplicity and incisive wit"--Elaine Equi.
