Re: “We survived a couple winter storms and an earthquake, but how will Atlanta handle Bieber?

As a recovered drunk, I can assure you that Atlanta has
drunk tanks, jail sentences and probation, and state
mental institutions waiting for him. That is how people
who act like he does are treated in this Southern town.

Re: “Best local author

Thanks to Creative Loafing, to Valerie King, who got out the vote, and to all those readers who voted for my book, "The Delivery Guy." I post here what others have said about it, and the ways that you can buy it. You can buy it as a paperback, or E Book on Lulu. You can buy it on Amazon Kindle, and at Barnes and Noble.--Mikel K

The Delivery Guy by Mikel K Reviews


It is not lightly that I compare my friend, Mikel K Poet to a Bukowski, John Fante or Hunter S. Thompson. He is twisted. He is misunderstood. He is Arturio Bandini running amok through this crazy life! Mostly, he is genius in its purest, most insane form (and I say that in a good way). Not all will "get" him, but that's ok because he doesn't "get" most of us mere mortals either. His observations, stories and poetry are intriguing, thought-provoking and sometimes downright disturbing...gotta love it!--Valerie King

Mikel,

I read and enjoyed The Delivery Guy very much.
I was surprised that I could finish a book, because I just haven't been able to do that lately.
I now believe that there just isn't much good art out there to begin with - lots of hype - lots of marketing - curb appeal - glitz - not much you can sink into...

Congratulations on cutting through spiritual materialism,

This is a must read for everyone who ever thought about saying 'screw the system' and wanted to face reality in the raw, but haven't, or couldn't, find the guts to do it.

The Delivery Guy is a poet's journal of events and decisions facing a man trying to dig below the surface of corporate security and acceptable mythological and social hiding places, to see what's what and feel the energy of what 'is' in our era.

There are no safety nets to catch Mikel in his walk through the primate insanity of the human experience in a crowded city of frightened Homo Sapiens.

Mikel K is the new Charles Bukowski!

--Lou Majors

-----------------------------------------

The Delivery Guy is a fast read, full of anecdotes of the author's life: thoughts and musings of an observer, as well as a man who creates his own action (not always for the better).
I found myself laughing aloud in spots, and for me it was worth those moments. It is a prose piece that has a specific cadence; the punctuation fits even if it forces the reader to stop. Spelling and grammar fit within the context of what is being read and can be off-putting until the flow of the text is found by the reader. His prose deals with personal desire, and the real concreteness of his life, his focus is inner and not outward so the imagery is implied and not expressed. Some of the story telling is resolved in surprising ways.
I recommend this to the person who is trying to make sense of their lives. The Delivery Guy definitely delivers some harsh insight.

"I found the book, "The Delivery Guy," by Mikel K to be a refreshing and sometimes uncomfortably honest look into the life of a modern writer struggling to come to terms with a pre-fabricated and often superficial, turn of the century, American society. The battle is dynamic and comes to an uplifting spiritually evolved conclusion. I found it a fascinating read!!!"
