No Theater

A good friend of mine in the Longview neighborhood (for you non-Raleigh folk, that's the name of the glorious neighborhood where Jess + I live) is a poet. He has a new, simple and fantastic book out called No Theater. Here's a blurb from the website which has published and is now selling the book via PayPal from their website:

Considering the responsibilities of the social world with a disconnected eye, NO THEATER is a collection of meticulously crafted poems that perform outside of time, but remain intuitively familiar and profound. Chris Tonelli reveals the artificialities of the everyday self with a language stalked by loss yet driven by possibility. Here, these poems come prepared in an armature of many masks and invested with an insight sure to move around the mental furniture of any reader.

Chris Tonelli co-curates The So and So Series and is the author of four chapbooks, most recently For People Who Like Gravity and Other People (Rope-A-Dope Press, forthcoming). He teaches at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, where he lives with his wife Allison.

You can buy the book from by simply clicking on the "Books" link. You'll find a sample of one of the poems there as well. You can keep up with some of his other work by checking out his blog.
