To say that David Brazil's The Ordinary is "long in the making," or "highly anticipated," or "essential" is to do little justice to how important and rabidly anticipated this book really is. Brazil's presence in the Bay Area poetry scene is felt everywhere, and this book will further solidify his role as innovator and soothsayer. Which is why it's my great pleasure to announce that The Ordinary has arrived! There is no question that you need this book (really), and I can assure you that it will sell out faster than one might think. Make it happen NOW!
You can order your copy from Small Press Distribution,or you can order directly from me (which will likely be faster) here with FREE SHIPPING.
