Okay, let me just say it: he is a wonderful poet.

-- Steve Kowit, San Diego Union-TribuneKirbys voice and matter (teaching, literature, traveling, rock n roll, everyday bozohood) are utterly personal and, despite all the laughter, ultimately moving. -- Ray Olson, Booklist[Kirby] is a poet who peels away the layers of our skin to show us who we are: our weaknesses, our strengths, and our hilarious obsessions.

-- Micah Zevin, New PagesThe world that Kirby takes into his imagination and the one that arises from it merge to become a creation like no other, something like the world we inhabit but funnier and more full of wonder and terror. -- Philip Levine, PloughsharesThese poems may be too cool for words. -- Carol Muske-Dukes, New York Times Book ReviewInspired by the carpenters biscuit joint -- a seamless, undetectable fit between pieces of wood -- David Kirbys latest collection dramatizes the artistic mind as a hidden connection that links the mundane with the remarkable.

Even in our most ordinary actions, Kirby shows, there lies a wealth of creative inspiration: the poem that is written every day if were there / to read it.Well known for his garrulous and comic musings, Kirby follows a wandering yet calculated path. In Whats the Plan, Artists? a girls yawning in a picture gallery leads him to meditations on subjects as diverse as musical composition, the less-than-beautiful human figure, and the simple pleasures / of living.

The Biscuit Joint traverses seemingly random thoughts so methodically that the journey from beginning to end always proves satisfying and surprising.
