I'll read almost anything and love what captures my imagination. Best of all is responding to books in the larger cultural sense, loving or loathsome. Literature should have a place in the wider world.
A decent collection of poems*, but this was at the local middle school and many of them likely wouldn't resonate with most kids now...especially when it touches on what they're doing for spare time.*Typo'd as "problems", which although many of the pieces might be classified as "problem poetry," most wouldn't qualify as problems. So that was unfortunate.
