Review quote

"Reading Bad Boy Poet is like reading the face of Buster Keaton. These poems are honest, funny, and sometimes deeply sad, almost tragic, especially those about aging parents and a life crisis. What is most important when reading this is that I trust the author, and I trust his words. There are moments here that uplift the spirit, there are words here that fill readers with something moving and powerful." - Faruk Sehic - winner of the EU Prize for Literature.
