With provocative insights on every page and a new language for the heady, raw experience of being alive, these poems focus their gaze on the existential dilemma of how one finds meaning in a fallen world. The poems locate themselves in the detritus of modern consumer life, finding redemption and spiritual sustenance in a landscape beyond words. The work offers hope while stripping away the world's disguises, revealing the stable, comforting, and agreeable ground of living in the present moment.


"What a delight to read a poet who reminds us that 'You can / get what you want, but it's silly,' and yet then goes on to give us not only what we want, but what we need: cunningly crafted poems."  —David J. Rothman, author, Living the Life

"J Diego Frey is to poetry what Robert Manko is to New Yorker cartoons: dotted and humane, with a short reach to the absurd."  —Scott Sawyer, author, Earthly Fathers
