Poetry. Translation & Translation Studies. Classics. Collage. "From beginning to end, this is a book of telling contrasts between vastly different sensibilities, values, beliefs, customs, and modes of expressing and interacting with the world. This much one might expect from a book of translated poetry by a forgotten medieval saint. That it should, at least indirectly, critique the crass materialism of contemporary middle- class life might also not be terribly surprising. What, after all, could show more profoundly our weddedness to things than prayerful rumination on the immaterial spirit? That it should be hilarious and marvelously irreverent in achieving all of this is its greatest virtue, better even than a DeLonghi sandwich maker. Compare and contrast."—Russell Valentino

Mike Schorsch writes poems and essays about God and dead people. He also sues debt collectors in the Chicago area, where he lives with his wife and children.
Venantius Fortunatus (d. ca. 600 AD) was an early medieval troubadour, eventual Catholic bishop of Poitiers, and saint by popular acclamation. His Latin hymns and poems won him the admiration of eight centuries of monks and the scorn of six centuries of classicists.
"[It] is a manifestation of the sheer and adventurous wit of Mike Schorsch as much as it is a strange, beautiful, and meditative song to society. It’s an absolute wonder to be summoned into this book—or 'workbook,' as the entirety of the title offers . . . Schorsch’s tenacious voice is one of modern energy and doubt engaging with antiquity." —Amanda Nadelberg, author, Bright Brave Phenomena
