Feed Review

Feed is the fourth book in the Teebs tetralogy. It's an epistolary recipe for the main character, a poem of nourishment, and a jaunty walk through New York's High Line park, with the lines, stanzas, paragraphs, dialogue, and registers approximating the park's cultivated gardens of wildness. Among its questions, Feed asks what's the difference between being alone and being lonely? Can you ever really be friends with an ex? How do you make perfect mac & cheese? Feed is an ode of reconciliation to the wild inconsistencies of a northeast spring, a frustrating season of back-and-forth, of thaw and blizzard, but with a faith that even amidst the mess, it knows where it's going.

Title:Feed

    Read a bit cheesy for me, though I'm beginning to wonder if my growing cynicism makes me doubt what even objectively good art is. I started reading this work intrigued by overt gay themes and fancy wo...

    Pico brews an intoxicating mix from vignettes, confessions, and a steamy infusion of slang and (sometimes too cute) plays on words. I tried this book right after reading his companion book Junk, which...

    This was a breathtaking ride. I read all four pieces in Tommy Pico's Teebs Tetralogy in the past 24-hours, and I am blown away at the depth and breadth of a work that teases itself as being so surface...
