This book is a triumph of sonic quality, line construction, and sustained attention, and Yeager's greatest achievement is getting readers to follow his example and reach inside themselves.

Synopsis

The language of Matthew Yeager is ecstatic in the way the language of say, Walt Whitman or Kendrick Lamar is ecstatic: passionate, gregarious and so mind-bending the lines ring your head. Yeager fills his poems with everything in the world while producing poems that are both distinctive and otherworldly. Like That is the stellar debut of an interstellar talent. - Terrance Hayes Matthew Yeager’s big-hearted and brilliant debut, Like That, proves the sheer capaciousness of the poetic form, pulling from what Neruda once described as “the sumptuous appeal of the tactile.” These poems, always funny, sad, and true, are wonderfully human at their core. - Cate Marvin
