"There’s much to reap from The Drunk Sonnets even if you don’t often feel like throwing up at work"

Joseph Goosey wrote a very thoughtful review of The Drunk Sonnets for The Rumpus. Here's an excerpt:

Just as Charles Bukowski could be typecast as the despairing drunk and Frank O’Hara could be typecast as the joyous drunk, Bailey’s work embodies more accurately the bi-polar nature of drunken thought, sharing both his despair and his joys and all that sits in between.

Thanks Joseph!

If you drank it you might die."
