Tender In the Age of Fury

Out now from Mosaic Press!

Here is that rarest of things in poetry these days: a unique voice. One that is neither obscurantist nor self-indulgent. Brandon Pitts inhabits a kind of wild west biblical terrain peopled by gunfighters and long-bearded prophets. a land that most of his fellow poets don’t even know exists and wouldn’t  dare visit if they did. Bob Dylan has prospected there. Nick Tosches, too. There’s gold in those streams and this guy Pitts has panned some of it.

— Jim Christy, author of “The Long Slow Death of Jack Kerouac” and “The BUK Book, Musings On Charles Bukowski” 

Pitts’s poetry slouches, grimoire in hand, tribal Bible underfoot at a cornfield crossroads … Jerry Lee pumps marching orders to Sherman’s charcoaled Georgia … Keef wailing incoherent chords … much madness, some prophecy, enter … this … history … at … your … own … sanity …

— Chris Faiers, author of Eel Pie Dharma

Pitts’ work is visceral, political, irreverent, historical, biblical, romantic, vulgar and lyrical. And you really need to hear those words and rhythms.”

— Blogger Cathy McKim of Life With More Cowbell

As a conceptual artist, Pitts carries a capability to look forward to very specific, awe-inducing works.

— Greg Bem of Yellow Rabbits

Brandon’s poetry debut! Since it’s release in late December of 2011, this dynamic collection of poetry surprised the Toronto lit scene with strong sales and a unique voice. Originally published on the small Canadian publisher IOWI by Cheryl Antao Xavier, this central Canadian hit is about to make its US debut with a revised 2nd edition.

“(Brandon) raises the bar to a level that we haven’t seen in decades. A bar that should inspire other poets and writers to reach for.”   – Carolina Smart, Lipstik Indie

“A collection of poems written with that undone spirituality you can only get from an irreverent wizard… or a genuinely enlightened hitchhiker.”     Origo Books
