              How Beautiful the Ordinary: Twelve Stories of Identity (EPUB ebook)

              By Cart, Michael; Block, Francesca Lia; Levithan, David; Koertge, Ron; Shanower, Eric

              A girl thought to be a boy steals her sister's skirt, while a boy thought to be a girl refuses to wear a cornflower blue dress. One boy's love of a soldier leads to the death of a stranger. The present takes a bittersweet journey into the past when a man revisits the summer schoo...l where he had "an accidental romance." And a forgotten mother writes a poignant letter to the teenage daughter she hasn't seen for fourteen years.Poised between the past and the future are the stories of now. In nontraditional narratives, short stories, and brief graphics, tales of anticipation and regret, eagerness and confusion present distinctively modern views of love, sexuality, and gender identification. Together, they reflect the vibrant possibilities available for young people learning to love others-and themselves-in today's multifaceted and quickly changing world.

              In Plain, Unpretentious Language, with brutal honesty, Ron Koertge can meld violence, love, human ugliness, joy, and modern depravity into a short lyric that makes us laugh out loud or socks us in the gut. His images arrive in giant clown shoes -- cigars the size of Florida, the ...plastic man's counter-length arms -- or Koertge neatly packages them in carefully observed detail, writing of an ant's black little heart or the dark and leathery breast of an ape. Through every poem there runs a constant and sincere humanity, a voice that laughs at itself, goads us a bit, but just as often lifts us up when we place ourselves gambling with the crowd at Ruidoso race track, driving from the parking lot of the Mexican restaurant, or shambling with the distraught parent leaving the hospital.In Making Love to Roget's Wife, Ron Koertge offers his best work from twenty-three years and a dozen earlier collections. With twenty-five new poems, and over eighty from previous books, this selection will serve to reawaken us to the presence of a superbly honed, comic voice. These poems run off the tracks, and yet somehow make tremendous sense. They are not only the most charming poems in the world, but great fun. There is something holy about a poet who wants to give his readers nothing but pleasure. He throws such magic dust in the eyes that I swear Ron Koertge is my favorite poet. I couldn't be a bigger fan . -- Ed Field

              Nobody writes poetry like Ron Koertge -- nobody has the nerve. From short, acerbic lyrics to hilarious prose poems about nutty German professors and Dracula's teenage girlfriend, readers laugh out loud at simple turns of phrase before they are jerked sober by startling insights i...nto the way we live -- and Koertge knows how we live. Nothing in American culture is safe from the scythe of his irony -- not Joan Crawford, not Superman, nor Frank Sinatra. He lampoons our literary heroes and historical giants with the gentlest touch, and we find ourselves grinning before we realize that Koertge is redefining what we thought we knew. His poems are alternately funny or poignantly sad because they are always true, and that truth lingers long after the reading is over. In Geography of the Forehead, Ron Koertge offers us nearly sixty poems, each a brilliant testament to the human condition. Though he has been writing his influential and highly original poems for many years , Charles Harper Webb declares, he is still something of a secret: a poet of dazzling wit, and surprising sweetness. With this collection, however, the secret is out .

              Audio: Stoner & Spaz (Uab) (Audio cassette / Audio)

              By Koertge, Ron

              For sixteen-year-old Ben Bancroft -- a kid with cerebral palsy, no parents, and an overprotective grandmother -- the closest thing to happiness is hunkering down alone in the back of the Rialto Theatre, watching Bride of Frankenstein for the umpteenth time. Of course, the last pe...rson he wants to run into is drugged-out Colleen Minou, resplendent in ripped tights, neon miniskirt, and an impressive array of tattoos. But when Colleen climbs into the seat beside him and rests a woozy head on his shoulder, Ben has that unmistakable feeling that his life is about to change. With unsparing humor and a keen flair for dialogue, Ron Koertge captures the rare repartee between lonely teenagers on opposite sides of the social divide.

              Walker shouldn't be so surprised to find Jesus standing in the middle of his bedroom. After all, he prayed for whoever was up there to help his mom, who hasn't stopped crying since Noah died, two months ago. But since when have prayers actually been answered? And since when has J...esus been so ... irreverent?
