“This clever, funny, gorgeous debut collection of surreal poems — letters, rants, familial love poems, heartbreaks—will twist your head in just the right ways. Geordie Miller is one hell of a great surpriser, and when he starts his revolution, I’m in.”—Carolyn Smart, author ofÂ Hooked
“In Geordie Miller’s eye-popping new bookÂ Re:Union, we are told that “The human comedy is not very funny”—though we travel far and wide to document its ironic incidentals, the jokes that just don’t quite come out as jokes, the details of what’s happening at the limits of attention/humour. Behind the self-deprecating laughter there’s a neoliberal static, the white noise of austerity, cheap copies of Ayn Rand’sÂ Atlas ShruggedÂ vying for our attention in a slant dialogue with Lenin’sÂ What Is To Be Done—both books left for our perusal in the vague spaces of travel and social encounter that haunt these subtle and fleeting poems. If Frank O’Hara were around today and a member of the intellectual precariat (over-educated and under-employed) now wandering our cities looking for lines to parse amidst the flotsam and jetsam of pop culture, he’d recognize Geordie Miller’s world in an instant. The two poets might even sit down to lunch together. I for one wouldn’t mind listening in on the conversation. This book feels like the chance to do so.”—Stephen Collis, author ofÂ Decomp
“An excellent set of nimble-witted poems that turn and chirp in surprising ways, baiting the reader to press on beyond punchlines and sinkholes with a smirk.”—The Coast
“Sharp and sincere, Miller’s impressive collection of poems, Re:union, caught me off guard, seamlessly weaving prosaic anecdotes, wry celebrations of minor crises avoided, wide-eyed childhood adventures, small town disasters, and accidental comedies.”—Broken Pencil
