Ethan Coen (of the Coen Brothers movie making pair) wrote a book of poetry. The title is indicative of the humorous slant of much of the book. Often funny poems-- with some occasionally serious-- this collection feels somewhat insubstantial. ( )

Pretty much what you'd expect a Coen brother's poetry to be. Obscene, hilarious, and deeply weird. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0609609467, Hardcover)

From the fabulously creative filmmaker who wrote and produced movies such as Fargo, Barton Fink, and Blood Simple, this is a provocative, revealing, and often hilarious collection of poems that offers insight into an artist who has always pushed the boundaries of his craft.

In his screenplays and short stories, Ethan Coen surprises and delights us with a rich brew of ideas, observations, and perceptions. In his first collection of poems he does much the same. The range of his poems is remarkable–funny, ribald, provocative, sometimes raw, and often touching and profound.

In these poems Coen writes of his childhood, his hopes and dreams, his disappointments, his career in Hollywood, his physically demanding love affair with Mamie Eisenhower, and his decade-long battle with amphetamines that produced some of the lengthier poems in the collection. You will chuckle, nodding with recognition as you turn the pages, perhaps even stopping occasionally to read a poem. Handsomely and durably bound between hard covers, this is a book that will stand up to most readers’ attempts to destroy it.
