Description:
Poppin' Johnny: New American Poems by George Wallace is a stunning collection by a poet whose work recalls the conversational diction of the Beatniks, but with an absolutely contemporary flavor. Known worldwide due to his broad-based internet following (for years, Wallace posted his poems online daily), Wallace has selected more than 70 poems for this collection, presenting a panorama of modern-day Americana, a kind of post-modern poetic "On the Road" that feels like music and offers a surreal trip into what's left of the American heartland. His honesty is as refreshing as his incredible fresh and wholly-original technique. As original Beatnik musician David Amram notes, "Jack Kerouac would have loved him."
