hey I like monkeys. I even like chimps. but I'm not sure "it's a good book" qualifies as a review. but I do agree that I can use a drink.

When a monkey talks, you listen. maybe it is more of a blurb. It had me laughing and that is plenty

i'd call it more a lite advert. but i agree a monkey(don't chimps get offended when you call em monkeys?) have some selling power. especially monkeys (chimps!) with a British accent. but even still, i am interested in seeing some actual review of the book. I don't want to have to go write and publish them myself under one of my many psudonyms you know?

Sargent Owen Take might do a review.

Lilly Whiteflower, Evelyn Swiss, and Benny Thompson all said they want to help out.

I love writing that takes me on a journey. It doesn't have to be far. Maybe, a backyard. A distant planet. Either is a welcome occasion in my life.

Now when I read something that does a mental trapeze act with language, imagery, and still manages to use thematic characters like the LAW, A HORSE, and A GUNSLINGER, you better believe I am going to be a bit more than plain-Jane-ecstatic. In fact, I usually bow down right then and there. I know magic when I see it. I also know there's a new sheriff in town. He lives in Korea. He knows baseball. And he just might be the greatest, living poet you never heard of.

Whole Milk, Goar's first debut, is now available from Effing Press. It fits in your back pocket, and makes for the perfect companion for any journey with public transportation. Pick up your copy today. You might get a chance to see genius up close. Of course, it depends if you can see with Van Gogh's ear stapled firmly to your nose.
