David Blaine


David Blaine was born in a pizza patch in the Bronx, New York. When he was young, mafia hoodlums roughed him up and stole his middle name. His parents were too poor to buy him a new one. Dave’s family moved to Michigan when he was three. He attended his grandfather’s alma mater, Whasamata U, with a degree in history. It only took three years because, back then, there was a lot less history to learn.

Don’t believe that? Fine: David Blaine’s poetry, prose, interviews, reviews and essays have been published widely in print and online. David lives in rural Michigan where he works in the family’s hardware business with his wife and children.

From David Blaine, who professes to be just another bush league poet pressing the virtual flesh and hoping to become internationally famous, comes a third chapbook, ANTISOCIAL. Forget the pseudo-intellectualizing verbosity too commonly associated with poetry. ANTISOCIAL is straightforward and digestible, yet not against encouraging a bit of self-reflection. Plus, it just might make you laugh.
