Reviews about Go West, Young Toad: Selected Writings (4):
Coiwield
I find it funny that Locklin has very few reviews, and yet these reviews endow him with the title of "great writer"; most likely they are coming from sycophantic students who are trying to get an A (if you are an attractive woman, you don't have to try very hard (pun intended))or Locklin himself. I was one of his students, and as I try to recall anything from his lectures, I don't remember learning anything in his class, only that he sat in class and named dropped a lot. Apparently, he was a great friend of Charles Bukowski, but it was clear he was more of an admirer/imitator than a friend. I have read published letters of Bukowski and I don't ever recall ever reading any correspondences between him and Locklin. I guess somehow being associated with Bukowski gave him that "cool" cred that impressed many students. I was one of them who fell for it, but was quickly disappointed. Perhaps the most amusing are the "signed" copies from the writer as if they are going to hold some value in the future. Seriously?

Gerald Locklin's written words never fail to provide humor and insight in the reader's life. His versatility is unique and covers years of careful observation tempered with a tongue-in-cheek attitude. His short stories cover a wide range of humorous occurrences, incidents which could be imaginary colorings, or real life stories, but each will bring a tiny gleam to the reader's imagination and eye, as they remember similar happenings in their own lives. Locklin has just the right touch, has his finger on the pulse of reality. Mark Weber did an excellent editorial job on the compiling of this long list of selected writings by Gerald Locklin. As a poetry editor and the publisher of JVC BOOKS, I personally know both of these very talented men and I am continually astonished by the still over-flowing out-pouring efforts of both. If you have never read Gerald Locklin's work, this is a prime book for you for it encapsulates both his poetry and his short story writing abilities.

Gerry Locklin is one of the most sensitively brilliant writers I've ever read and this book gives a comprehensive review of his life's work up to publication. He's funny and sad and taps into the true poetic essenc,. A writer that writes the truth of life and all it's quirky out takes. I've read that his poems were written for people that don't read poetry, this exemplifies his universality but with that even his work is not trite or badly commonplace, but rather insightful and pretty rock and roll in his own way. Bukowski endorsed him before he died to me that's a pretty heavy reason to read Gerry. Locklin is amazing as is this book. And if you hate Bukowski (as some out there do), don't pass Locklin or this his only worthwhile compilation other than the Firebird poems.

Much like his other collected works, this book is a good introduction to a man that is widely spread throughout the small press. Instead of buying up a dozen chapbooks, a reader can well acquaint themselves to Locklin by reading this volume.
