"The book is great! It's not a coffee table book; it's more like a mantle book." -Josh Silberman (Discovery Channel Producer, Deadliest Catch)"Poetry is powerful but can be elitist; poetry is beautiful but can be inaccessible."Usman Ather and Faraaz Saiduzzaman understood this and sought to provoke more atypical audiences to reflect on the potent beauty of poetry.With this goal in mind, they set off on a unique soul safari that involved baiting people with poems and trapping their thoughts in the process. This expedition would later be called the Musky Misc. project.They shared their original poems with The Pink Power Ranger, The TV Producer of Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch, a Native American Choctaw Muslim singer, a Fulbright Scholar from Harvard, a biomechanical engineer, a cancer survivor, poetry-phobes, athletes, scientists, photographers, theologians, comedians, doctors, lawyers, journalists, college students and many many others.In this book you will find a rather miscellaneous collection of thoughts, personal stories, anecdotes, creative analyses, and reflections (from a shockingly diverse list of people!) that are all infused with the musky sweetness of being inspired by poems from Usman and Faraaz.Testimonials:"Musky Misc. is a most unusual and well-executed idea for a poetry book. It's part compilation, part yearbook, part call-and-response creativity. Usman and Faraaz have really created something original."- Nathaniel Mathews (Author of River of Desire, Ocean of Love) "Poetry inspires, elevates and nurtures the spirit. Rumi's verses sum up the experience you may have while reading this book:Very little grows on jagged rock.Be ground. Be crumbled.So wild flowers will come up where you are.You have been stony for too many years.Try something different. Surrender. "- Kashif Syed (Software Engineer)
