coop there it is
In addition to tending the raddest beard ever to come out of Detroit, the poet, professor, populist, M.L. Liebler somehow found the time to cobble together an anthology of blue-collar paeans and between-paycheck prose, a collection awesomely entitled Working Words: Punching the Clock and Kicking Out the Jams. Liebler will be in Cambridge this evening, reading selections from the work, alongside his good buddy, Al Fucking Cooper. Yes. That Al Cooper. “Roosevelt Gook”-Al Cooper. “Blood Sweat & Tears”-Al Cooper. Al Cooper-Al Cooper. Bob Dylan’s favorite organist reciting Eminem lyrics. Hells yeah.
