Cody Walker's Shuffle and Breakdown, his first collection and a finalist for the Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize in 2005 and 2006

Cody Walker's Shuffle and Breakdown, his first collection and a finalist for the Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize in 2005 and 2006. It's not every poet who can pull off a book that combines a high-brow reference to Walt Whitman (the title, Shuffle and Breakdown, is taken from Leaves of Grass) with an epigraph by Richard Pryor. But Seattle's official Poet Populist Cody Walker is not just any poet, and the Pryor quote - 'This ain't as funny as we thought it was gonna be' - gives fair warning that readers can expect Walker's new book (Waywiser Press, November 2008) to pull them in many directions at once.
