This collection of poetry showcases the work of "the heartiest and most enthusiastic celebrant since Whitman" (Jim Cory). Above all, James Broughton delights in pleasures of body and soul - but perhaps especially those of the body - with wit and charm.
As Rain Taxi writes, "Broughton's is a poetry of revelation, not obfuscation. . . . Each poem is a celebration and a call to offset the putrefaction of complacency with a bit of devilishness."

"If you become familiar with your dreams, you will enter the translucent realm of the archetypes, those potent primal images of mankind. They are much more exciting and abiding than topical events." -- James BroughtonAbout the Author:
It is often said that poet-filmmaker James Broughton's films are poetic, and his poems cinematic: "On the long outskirts of a dismantled city / toward the final flicker of dusk / I entered the cave of an unfinished cathedral."
Without a doubt, he has met with abundant success in both of these pursuits, having won lifetime achievement awards from both the National Poetry Association and the American Film Association. His life's work was an attempt to discover the contradictory nature of his humanity and its roots; the result was a poetic and artistic life that inspired many. A forthcoming feature-length documentary, "Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton," is set to be released in 2013-2014.
Broughton's advice to filmmakers: Follow your own weird.
