Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Author: Lin Tao
$24.95(AUD)  inc GST

Tao Lin, author of the underground sensation Eeeee Eee Eeee, continues his deadpan existential-slapstick style in this collection of poems. Here, the persona attempts to explain to himself the possible origins, ends and cures of anger, worry, despair, obsession and confusion, while concurrently experiencing those things in various contexts including a romantic relationship, a book of poetry and the arbitrary nature of the universe.

"Tao Lin's poetry passes by slacker era irony and self-indulgent formalism to dig up something deeper and more human, even when that something seems on first reading to merely be depressed hamsters."
--Jeffrey Brown, author of "Clumsy" and "Little Things"

"I hope this new publisher uses my blurb this time. I was a little sad that the other one didn't use it. They could have sold tens of copies if they'd put my blurb on that book. But this book is better; these poems are serious and funny and more than they appear. I am a big fan of Tao Lin's writing and this book makes me happy."
--Matthew Rohrer, author of "A Green Light" and "Rise Up"
