The Endarkenment Book Description:

"Known for his commanding stage presence as a reader, McDaniel trades hard in his fourth book on his rough-and-tumble persona--a recovering addict from the working class streets--while also showing softer sides. McDaniel's sometimes awkward, if earnest searching might just be what allows him to find moments of great beauty, humor and stillness." --Publishers Weekly “McDaniel is known for his talent performing his poems, however his voice doesn’t lose its impact in written form. It may be more powerful because the reader can view the poet’s unique ideas and phrases over and over until their various meanings sink in.” —Gently Read Literature "McDaniel zings metaphors across the page like he's the Robin Williams of poetry. This collection in frequently moving and inventive with enough lightheartedness and whimsy to balance the heaviness of the darker moments." --hipbooksterclub.com Jeffrey McDaniel is the author of Alibi School, The Forgiveness Parade, and The Splinter Factory. His work has appeared in a number of anthologies, including Best American Poetry 1994, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry, and New (American) Poets. He has won several awards, including an NEA Fellowship. He teaches creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College.
