Best Blurb Ever in the History of Blurbs

Jason Cook, editor of the terrific literary journal Ampersand, wrote this blurb for the back of my forthcoming book, Heart With a Dirty Windshield: "Howie Good's poetry punches you in the face and steals your wallet. It sleeps with your wife and hides the remote control. Howie Good's poetry, the reader suspects, works for the Yakuza."

such a blurb makes me want to meet Howie Good's poetry, devil that it (or would it be he?) is.
