Mike Topp is a disablingly funny writer--a miniaturist of nervous precisions, our supreme abridger of metropolitan startlement and inner fidgetry. He dazes and graces us.
"Mike Topp asked me to write a blurb for his book. I thought about it, but then decided Mike Topp should be writing his own blurbs. Nobody writes better in fewer words than Mike Topp. Nobody. Mike Topp creates worlds in seven words, sometimes six." -Paul Maliszewski
"Just when I think Mike Topp’s poems are funny, they’re wise. Just when I think they’re wise, they’re bad. Just when I think they’re bad, they’re great. Mike Topp’s poems are exactly like the world." -Eileen Myles
