Thinking Things Through Blurbage

Praise for Thinking Things Through by Greg Santos:

"From faraway hotel rooms to quiet rides in the country, from Perfect Strangers to late-night infomercials, from a Mickey Mouse alarm clock to an all-too-familiar snooze button, and from cheese fries and 3 a.m. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and Cheetos to Pepto-Bismol, Greg Santos's poems detail, essentially, what all we Gen Y-ers must sadly recognize--or, perhaps, proudly claim--as the sobering truths that daily remind us, whether we like it or not, that we are growing up."
-Molly Gaudry, author of We Take Me Apart

"Thinking Things Through is the literary equivalent of poutine. It's a mash up of high and low culture with gravy on top. The kind of thing you devour at 3 in the morning regardless of the consequences."
-Ben Mirov, poetry editor for LIT

"in these poems greg santos gives thanks to george foreman. he claims to be a lemur. he writes about clicky pencils, ab masters, oscar meyer weiners and mecha squirrels. reading these poems made me think greg santos genuinely killed a dragon but then got nervous and said he didn't. well done greg santos. that dragon was a dick."
-Crispin Best, editor of For Every Year, and wealthiest and healthiest man in the world

The blurbs by these lovely individuals were originally posted on DJ Berndt's super sweet blog, Self-Conscious.
