My Vibe

By Jeremy Sigler. Edited by Dan Nadel.

My Vibe is New York–based poet and writer Jeremy Sigler’s collection of diaristic tales by an only partly sympathetic struggling poet who flirts with—and often fails at—creating romance and playful distractions in his otherwise boring life. The tales are self-deprecating, awkward, nostalgic and at times perverse, but they retain warmth, honesty, whimsy, charm and are often wickedly funny. “I love pseudoscience. I love it. Next time I read my work in public, I’m gonna cut out big cardboard letters and paint them red. I’m gonna prop them up behind me: T-E-D. Pseudoscientists get all the fans. They get all the love letters. For their viral youtubes of levitating beer cans. The Pseudos get all the attention. They go viral. Unlike poets.”
“Jeremy’s voice is one you can’t deny; it’s crisp, clever and sometimes creepy. It’s like finding someone’s old journals, their identity revealed bit by bit, confession by confession.” – Abbi Jacobson, Broad City
Jeremy Sigler (born 1968) is a poet, critic and teacher living in Brooklyn, New York. Sigler has had four collections of poetry published, including Crackpot Poet (Black Square Editions, 2010).
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The Paris Review

Nicole Rudick

I find the poems incredibly charming because they are observant, indulgent, and funny: from flirting with a hipster stewardess to get an aisle seat on a plane by admitting bladder-control issues, to awkwardly complimenting a woman on her Yayoi Kusama hoodie and then discoursing briefly to the reader on Kusama’s art.

BOMB Magazine

Samuel Jablon

Jeremy Sigler does not write nice poems. There's something honest (with a touch of creep) about them…[He] has the ability to rejoice at his own misery—a slew of embarrassing messes most would rather cover up or deny altogether.

Clocktower

David Colosi

Sigler takes us on a slapstick Broken Flowers-esque journey of the poet (and maybe Poetry itself) in mid-life crisis, reminiscing, revisiting and rewriting personal scenes of failed rock-n-roll, sports and sexual attempts, savoring the joys of married life and parenthood while comically entertaining the desire to remain a sole and smooth operator.

Tablet

Julian Kreimer

Jeremy Sigler… is not afraid to make himself look bad. The many cringe-making situations in My Vibe, his new book of prose poems, land it into the long lineage of horny-guy maybe-autobiographical books like Henry Miller’s Sexus trilogy and Philip Roth’s Portnoy’s Complaint.

Hyperallergic

Alan Gilbert

... Jeremy Sigler’s My Vibe offers refreshing honesty about failure within the system of calculation and profit.
