Description


My Vibe is New York-based poet and writer Jeremy Sigler's collection of diaristic tales by an only partly sympathetic struggling poet who flirts with--and often fails at--creating romance and playful distractions in his otherwise boring life. The tales are self-deprecating, awkward, nostalgic and at times perverse, but they retain warmth, honesty, whimsy, charm and are often wickedly funny. "I love pseudoscience. I love it. Next time I read my work in public, I'm gonna cut out big cardboard letters and paint them red. I'm gonna prop them up behind me: T-E-D. Pseudoscientists get all the fans. They get all the love letters. For their viral youtubes of levitating beer cans. The Pseudos get all the attention. They go viral. Unlike poets."
"Jeremy's voice is one you can't deny; it's crisp, clever and sometimes creepy. It's like finding someone's old journals, their identity revealed bit by bit, confession by confession." - Abbi Jacobson, Broad City
