“Joe DiMaggio Moves Like Liquid Light,” by Loren Broaddus is my new favorite poetry anthology! Wow! I loved this collection of “baseball” poems that used the backdrop of America’s favorite pastime to speak about the past 100 years of modernity and post-modern society in America.

From technological advancements like the heralded Astrodome to the demise of the sacrifice bunt due to analytics, this collection tells a story about our past, present and future that goes one step further, digs a little deeper into what we give up and what we lose in search for the new, the next best thing, the next breakthrough. These poems are beautiful, deep and rich and my favorite part is that they all revolve around one of my favorite sports, baseball!

I love this collection and I would wholly recommend it to every sports fan and anyone interested in reading deep, intriguing poetry that asks the reader to step back and think about the path we’re headed down as a society. I loved this book! I can’t wait to re-read it. 🙂

I received this eBook free of charge from Andrews McMeel Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. I did not receive any fiscal compensation from either company for this review and the opinions expressed herein are entirely my own.
