Praise for The Arrest of Mr. Kissy Face

Professional Praise

Unlike most writers, Mitchell Grabois is not hiding behind words in some abstract mumbo-jumbo that is known as “poetry” in academia. You will understand every word, every sentiment. His plain-speak is disarming, and makes me question. No power is stronger than the freedom to question. 

Rich Soos, Editor, Cholla Needles

Mitchell Krockmalnik Grabois has a recipe for mixing unorthodox ingredients into ambrosial poetry: with savagery and sophistication, restraint and extravagance, THE ARREST OF MR. KISSY FACE serves up a rancher with a thousand dead cattle, Henry David Thoreau bowling with a pistol on the ice of Walden Pond, and the drunk dog who saved Ireland.
