Even if you're on the fence about poetry, having grown to dislike it in school, Randall McNair will bring you over to his side of the fence, the one where the absurd lives. In this debut collection of poems, McNair paints a humorous and vivid picture of what it was like to be a burnout in a world full of over achievers. Although at times raw and explicit, McNair's poetry allows us inside the mind of a very creative but sad soul, one who's stuck in a career he hates and who, through the words of a hopeless drunk, shows us how that feels. As Clive Matson writes about the book, "Poem after poem lays out a precious gift - the gift of a person."
So, if you'd like to feel more alive, to laugh, to cry, to feel the simple joy of a man and his beer, give yourself the gift of a person, this poet Randall McNair and his book, "Dispatches from the Swinging Door Saloon." You'll be glad you did!

Randall McNair, self-proclaimed Poet Laureate of the Absurd, spent the better part of a decade drinking himself silly at the Swinging Door Saloon in Tustin, California. While there, he was inspired to put pen to paper by a combination of Charles Bukowski, Billy Collins, Sharon Olds & the muse at large. His Poetry CV includes a BA in English (Creative Writing) from CSU Long Beach in 2002, the 2002 Key West Literary Seminar's Advanced Poetry Workshop with Sharon Olds, the 2009 Key West Literary Seminar's Advanced Poetry Workshop with Billy Collins and the 2019 Southampton Writers Conference 10-day Advanced Poetry Workshop also with Billy Collins. McNair's work has been published in both American and Canadian literary journals. He lives in Alameda, California, with his wife and young son.
