As review copies arrive, I stack them up in a corner of the writing desk until I am able to move them to the review copy bookshelf.  So, for a couple of days, a book with this blurb on its front cover has been on my desk sort of irritating/amusing me.  So many things wrong with it -- but I woke up this morning and felt ... pity.  For the poet who doesn't know any better than to allow it on his book:

Really, there's only one place for a blurb like Tom Wolfe's.  And that, young Jeddi, would be HERE.  Though, there's a good chance I'd reject it for its lack of imagination...
