Charles Bernstein "All the Whiskey in Heaven"
I'm going to get back to Becky Birtha in a minute, but before I do, I want to take a moment to mention Charles Bernstein "All the Whiskey in Heaven". The title of this book comes from the first line of the last poem in the book. The book is comprised of previously published poems and prose by the author. If you want a taste of what Mr. Bernstein is all about, then this is a good book to read. You can read it, see what you like, then delve deeper into the full length books that the pieces are excerpted from. I'd never read him before, so it was nice to get a view of his writing over the years all in one convenient place.
