BUDDY WAKEFIELD, three-time world champion spoken word artist, the inaugural author released on Write Bloody Publishing, and the most toured performance poet in history returns home to Los Angeles for the release of A Choir of Honest Killers, his first book of new work in eight years. You might wanna come in here and have a look at this....
Come exactly as you are.
Don't bring those.
"If ever you’ve been convinced that your wounds are bigger than you are, read this book. You will see how hard you have been trying, and will learn in its first pages to instead try softer. I have been a spoken word artist for two decades and have never once encountered a poet whose work leaves me more permeated with a pull towards presence. It’s been said that trauma narrows our lens on the world, points us towards a focal point of pain, but Buddy Wakefield’s writing is trauma’s opposite, widening our peripheral vision beyond what was previously believed possible. This book burns belief to the ground, plants Hallelujah in its place." —Andrea Gibson, Author of Pansy and The Madness Vase
"A Choir of Honest Killers made me rethink my life. Buddy Wakefield grabbed me by the guts and insisted I appreciate all the buried horror and wonder inside."—John Kim, The Angry Therapist, LMFT, author of I Used to Be a Miserable F*ck
"A Choir of Honest Killers is a goddamn work of art. It's the Buddy Lisa, the poetry collection I will most remember him for, a secure hand-off of the baton from 'Hurling Crowbirds at Mockingbars.' It's everything that made us fall in love with him in the first place."—Amir Safi, Founder of Write About Now and Winner of the 2018 International Poetry Prize
