"Divinely Inspired Listlessness" with Christoper Kennedy

The literary blog We Who Are About to Die not only sports one of the best titles in lit blogdom, but they have good taste too. Witness this excerpt from Michael Costello's review of Ennui Prophet by Christopher Kennedy: "Not only is Ennui Prophet a bastion of cool, it is a true pleasure of craft and originality. Christopher Kennedy writes a world at turns emotionally haunting, descriptively vibrant,  and at times the literary equivalent of an unnerving smirk. There is an uneasiness about and an anxious thread stitching together line to line, poem to poem. These are the surreal scenarios of a propheteering mind awash in the weariness expressed by the title." Costello also took the time to make the connection between this book and musician/artist Robert Pollard of the legendary indie band Guided By Voices. Intrigued? You should be.
