In the poems of Tim Hunts THE TAO OF TWANG, them talks back, both to return the laughter and to search for things we might need and even want, whether we imagine ourselves either us or them. Keith Abbott says: With care and honesty Tim Hunts THE TAO OF TWANG covers a lot of territory, from raw youth to rolling total old. Bakersfield to Nashville- all the E string pit stops in between and Hunt even supplies some imaginary heavens of those perfect gigs. And Sharon Doubiago adds: Indirectly, delightfully, Tim Hunts poems put the Holy Writ of academias canon under the same lens as it puts the culture of his roots.... Hilarious, thought-provoking, deeply philosophical, sometimes almost transhuman, to use Jeffers word, in the mix of subject and form from two different/almost at-war cultures, and with the help of his fantastic ear, you will know THE TAO OF TWANG. You will know why redneck Western poets write the way we do. And you will newly ponder, again, our aesthetic assumptions.
