Read full description of the books:



The Blue Blueprint is the first book of Dodds poetry to hit the literary world since The Last Man on the Moon. Its uniqueness, wordplay, wit and ebullience shine through in poems about the struggle to love, the September attacks, the shape of the world and of ourselves, as well as a handful of songs and the introduction of Spill-O, a character who is sure to linger in the memory and the dreams of readers and poets for years to come. Moving through the sub-basements of Brooklyn, the glistening spires of midtown Manhattan, the woods and beaches of the Northeast, The Blue Blueprint is as complete a picture of the world as has been attempted in poetry in the last fifty years. The book features stunning illustrations by Ben Gibson and Dan Jock, two up-and-coming superstars in the illustration world, as well as Ben Gibsons seminal graphic design.

“(The Last Bad Job) shows something that very few writers have; a species of inner talent that owes very little to other people.”
- Norman Mailer
************************************************************************************************************************************
“These are very good poems. For moments I could even feel the old feelings when I read them.”
- David Berman, songwriter and poet - Silver Jews, Actual Air
************************************************************************************************************************************
“…likely to become one of our premiere writers.”
-Grady Harp, Literary Aficionado

“The world of WATERSHED is a vibrant one, packed to the gills with absurd and yet oddly-believable detail – everything from a September 11th memorial service that involves a full-scale recreation of the original terrorist attack, to a man who gets off on being locked in a coffin with a bag full of cats… Dodds manages to make all this and more seem not just possible, but vivid and tangible too…. It’s the real deal…a strong contender to be one of the most interesting books you’ll read this year.”
– IndieReader Reviews (4.7/5 Stars)
************************************************************************************************************************************
“This cynical and surreal vision of a near-future America is intriguing and there is some genuine dark humor in the story… The use of language is interesting and the ideas are expressed thoughtfully, with attention to each word… unusual in both ideas and expression, blending elements of a suspense thriller with hints of paranormal fiction and a fair portion of social commentary to create a unique feel.”
– Publishers Weekly, BookLife Prize Review
************************************************************************************************************************************
“Readers will never be quite sure what lurks around the next corner… An appealing mix of adventure and contemplation.”
– Kirkus Reviews, writing about WATERSHED
************************************************************************************************************************************
“The masterfully dystopian WATERSHED unpacks the future of a modern America that, while spectacular, nobody was expecting… It’s a future that, as Leonard Cohen sang, is murder. The revelations of prose in WATERSHED makes that murder enjoyable… one of the few things worth believing in.”
– Two Thirds North
