Emma and the Buddha Frog
by Michael Klam

From the back cover:

“Wit, social commentary that verges on rabble-rousing, and an eye
for the quotidian detail, Michael Klam’s work is as disturbing as it is
pleasurable; the perfect combination for a book of poems.”
– Judy Reeves (author of A Writer’s Book of Days)

“Michael Klam doesn’t follow any rules, ever. I dig him and his
rule-bending, mind-blowing, sensory-stimulating words of rhythm.
Who knew an elementary-school teacher and father of two could be so tragically profound? Rhyme on Mr. Klam, and don’t worry – the kids are alright.”
– Kinsee Morlan (Arts and Culture Editor, San Diego CityBeat)
