    Smack lives in Seattle. The probable place of birth of Skid row. Smack is at home but homeless in his sojourns through the urban jungle and the forgotten souls of society. In our dash to self-destruction, Smack reminds us that, in the best of times and the worst of times, what matters is our humanity to each other. His poetry speaks for all of us.

    Smack Thompson is either completely insane or a certifiable genius...possibly both. Once you've been sucked into Smack's bizarre but truthful world, you won't be able to leave because you won't want to anyway, and because you won't be able to get his gritty take on reality out of your head. Smack is also an extremely nice and funny guy.

    Reading Smack Thompson makes me feel like I have just finished a tragic novella. You hate that's it's over and you can't wait for the next installment. Phenomenal talent.

    A one-of-a-kind poet. Homeless and most likely uneducated, Smack has a natural gift for arranging words in a way that vividly describe his dark world through the art of wonderful and haunting poetry. Smack Thompson should be famous.
