"David McGimpsey is unfuckwithable, poetry-wise, and I'll stand on John Ashberry's coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that."-Michael Robbins Implored to be "classy" and "real" for once, David McGimpsey looks to all things "poetic," like birds and history, and instead finds true value and meaning in diet lime soda and the words to "Bootylicious." Asbestos Heights amps up McGimpsey's trademark sideswiping of formal rhetoric with pop-culture verve to find a bold Late Night Petrarchan spirit. David McGimpsey is the author of several books of poetry and short fiction. He is also a musician, a fiction editor for Joyland, and his travel writing is a regular feature of enRoute magazine. He teaches creative writing and literature at Concordia University.
