Selected by Indie Booksellers for the September 2009 Indie Next List
“Paul Chowder, an infrequently-published poet, needs to come clean with his life (as well as his office). His girlfriend has left him, he's amassing an incredible credit card debt, and the deadline for an introduction to a poetry anthology he's editing is fast approaching. What ensues is a vivid collection of poetic insight, passages of anguished poets, and hilarious selections of Paul's daily misses and re-misses. The Anthologist is a story readers should not miss.”
-- Michael Karpus, Books & Books at Bal Harbour Shops, Bal Harbour, FL


Description
