Ethan Coen’s new book of poems, The Day the World Ends? It was released last week and I have a copy to give away. I was offered the book for review, but honestly, I just don’t think I’d do it justice. I am not a poetry lover.
Synopsis From one of the most inventive and celebrated filmmakers of the twentieth century, and co-creator of such classics as Fargo, No Country for Old Men, and True Grit, a collection of poems that offers humor and insight into an artist who has always pushed the boundaries of his craft. Ethan Coen’s screenplays have surprised and delighted international audiences with their hilarious vision and bizarrely profound understanding of human nature. This eccentric genius is revealed again in The Day the World Ends, a remarkable range of poems that are as funny, ribald, provocative, raw, and often touching as the brilliant films that have made the Coen brothers cult legends.
But I did offer to use it in quiz and give a copy to one lucky reader. Why would I accept a book of poetry if I’m not a fan? Well, he is a Coen brother who, along with his brother Joel, has written some of the best scripts. You can thank Ethan and Joel for Raising Arizona, Fargo, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading, and 18 others.
Want to win a copy? Leave a comment with an email address and then come back tomorrow to see how I used the poems for a quiz and enter again. I’ll draw a winner on Sunday, April 15th.
