David McGimpsey talks about Li'l Bastard

lilbastard.jpgApril is Poetry Month, and David McGimpsey is one of those poets who's keeping the genre up-to-date. Baseball, beer and a failed novel are just some of the topics he covers in his latest book. Lil Bastard is a collection of sonnets, or 128 "Chubby sonnets".

The poems explore McGimpsey's travels through North America, his passions and his  obsessions, including an obsession with "Barnaby Jones" as he told Sonali Karnick.
