Whole Milk is ready and waiting for you

40 pages
covers and interior illustrations by Josh Rios
w/ handmade Korean endpapers

a few of the things some people have said about the book (As found on Scott’s blog):

"I don't know what the words in it mean but the book fits in my back pocket and I look hotter and thinner when it is there."

-- girl on street

"Jim Goar writes some good English for a Korean."

-- guy at bus stop

"When I get high with you in the near future this little book of Jim Goar's is what I'll want to reach for"


"Any book with two poems that begin with the line 'a tree sprouted from my penis' is destined to break new ground. "

-- publisher's mom

Those are the greatest quotes ever. The one with your ma makes it for me.

We'll have to celebrate properly when you come to town.

I ordered one and I won't lose it or leave it another country or claim that my mother cooked it into the tuna noodle casserole or some such.

I hope there aren't too many birds in it.
