Nothing within the pages of Benjamin Niespodziany's debut, full-length poetry collection, NO FURTHER THAN THE END OF THE STREET, happens outside the confines of a single neighborhood block. Every word inside this book takes place in the narrator's house or on the front lawn or in the backyard or just down the way at a neighbor's home, but never do these poems stray beyond where the street ends. If you notice any characters tiptoeing where they don't belong, please be sure to let the author know for this is a contained space. A home for the author and his poems to play.

THIS BOOK INCLUDES:
Candles and sweaters.
Whales and horses.
Ghosts and eels.
Squid and mimes.
A turkey, a parrot, a toucan, a stork.
A sloth and a loft of owls.
A beast with one long arm and one normal arm.
A chainsaw and a snow blower.
Clown shoes and magic carpets.
Fine churchgoing people.
Rats. So many rats.
Clouds. So many clouds.

100 pp.

Advance Praise for NO FURTHER THAN THE END OF THE STREET:

“If you take a short walk at just the right time in just the right light, you can see all sorts of tiny astonishing things. This book is like that. I can’t stop staring." – Daniel Handler, author of BOTTLE GROVE, and as Lemony Snicket, A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS

"Benjamin Niespodziany shows us how poetry can live inside the Nonstop! No breaks, not a single pause; one page gets us turning to the next in this brilliant and wildly inventive book! The kind of weird home I want for all poems, where we most unexpectedly and very gratefully learn the smell of melancholy." – CAConrad, author of AMANDA PARADISE and THE BOOK OF FRANK

"Have you ever returned somewhere, somewhere you’ve been before, only to notice it is different? This object, somewhat askew, but not by much. That person, of course, their name is the same it’s always been. And it goes like this, this noticing, this thought of noticing & it turns not into a place you've returned to, but rather a place you've never left. Have you ever done that? Don’t answer until you’ve read Niespodziany's NO FURTHER THAN THE END OF THE STREET." – Dalton Day, author of EXIT, PURSUED and SPOOKY ACTION AT A DISTANCE
