A recent Publishers Weekly review is calling Michael Teig's new book There's a Box in the Garage You Can Beat with a Stick (BOA, 2013) a "mix of oddball phraseology and quiet pathos" which "should charm many readers and confuse some others..." "...in his image-rich free verse, the boundaries between cause and effect, the lines separating people, animals, vegetables, and manufactured products nearly disappear, creating a space part pastoral, part postmodern, and close to the poet’s peers and models... from Tomasz Salamun to Dara Wier." Commenting on the poet's distinctive style, the review says, "Teig... can pass from exhilaration to exhaustion, using his changeable, metaphor-laden technique ... His quieter moments, and his humor, might give this collection all the notes it needs." Click here to read the full Publishers Weekly review. Newly printed copies of There's a Box in the Garage You Can Beat with a Stick are now available at the BOA Bookstore. Pre-order your copy today to get it in your hands, early!
