Undone : A Fakebook
by Chris McCreary
a Furniture Press Book

"The poems in Undone are like echoes down a canyon — reverberating, overlapping, vibrating, creating a new kind of music — each word like a boat dislodged from its mooring, “like pieces of things / from which to weave / a dreaming.” That words have sound values which translate into meanings is the guiding principal and McCreary plays each note at its own perfect speed. Everything we didn’t know we needed to know is right here."
-- Lewis Warsh

"A lynchpin of Philadelphia’s indy avant-garde, Chris McCreary brings a tender swagger to his line, from popsong semiotics to lyric sequence to the mysterious 'The Black Book' mirroring the urban poet’s soul. A very real book, Undone does it all."
-- Garrett Caples

"Undone reveals Chris McCreary as a skilled practitioner of serious play. The poems engage our absurd American moment through critiques of popular culture, while acting as 'songs about buildings and food.' And make no mistake, there is music in this collection. If you aren't familiar with McCreary's ear that is both sharp and barbed, welcome to your discovery. Listen in with this technician, whose third ear reveals the brilliant intuition that could only be accomplished by an artist who has honed this mysterious craft- for your listening pleasure."
-- Frank Sherlock
