After being out of print for the last few months, my poetry collection, The Oregon Trail is the Oregon Trail, which was shortlisted for the 2012 Believer Poetry Award, is coming back in print! Thanks to Write Bloody Publishing, the book (now with pictures!) will be re-released on October 1st.
It is now available for pre-order over at Amazon.
If you don’t want to wait until October, you can get a copy through me because I’ve got them, & they are pretty. The price is $16/which includes (domestic) shipping. (If you’re international, it’ll be a few dollars more.) If interested, shoot me an email: jesuis (dot) gregory (at) gmail (dot) com. Would love to hear from you.
I was recently interviewed over at The Huffington Post about my my most recent collection, Monogamy Songs, as well as poetry in general. In the interview, I say things like “Sex is awesome. Poetry is awesome. Shouldn’t the two go together?” & Writing should be a little bit grainy, it should be a little bit raw. It should be every single thing flowing inside of us, and most of it isn’t pretty.” & “There is never enough fucking in poetry. Less birds, more fucking.”

A few months ago, my debut novel, The Future for Curious People (written in participation with Julianna Baggott) sold to Algonquin Books. It will be released in the fall of 2014. It also sold in Germany, Spain, Italy, France, and the UK. I do believe you will love it!
