Publisher’s write-up:

Bill Shute: Junk Sculpture From the New Gilded Age

Selected Poems, 2005-2017

Bill Shute (born 1958), working out of San Antonio, Texas, has published thirteen books and over one hundred chapbooks of open-field poetry, assemblages of particulars from an increasingly beaten-down, militarized, and polarized American South and Southwest. His initial inspirations as a poet were Paul Blackburn, Ted Berrigan, Gertrude Stein, and John Wieners. He has recorded poetry-and-music collaborations with a number of experimental and free-jazz artists, including Alfred 23 Harth, and since 2006 he has operated the South Texas-based small label and press Kendra Steiner Editions. Shute has also written extensively about music since the 1970s and has been a contributor to Ugly Things magazine for 35+ years. In 2012 he assembled the band for and produced a sold-out Austin concert by legendary outsider musician Jandek. In the last year he has issued the book-length poem ‘Complementary Angles’ and provided a critical introduction for a new collection of filmmaker Edward D. Wood Jr.’s early 1970s non-fiction writings, ‘When The Topic Is Sex’ (Bear Manor Media).

His other recent book-length poems include ‘Satori In Natchez,’ ‘Among The Newly Fallen,’ ‘Riverside Fugue,’ ‘Tomorrow Won’t Bring The Rain,’ and ‘Two Self-Portraits (After Murillo)’.

Junk Sculpture From The New Gilded Age: Selected Poems 2005-2017 contains a wide variety of never-reissued shorter poems from long out-of-print chapbooks, including his acclaimed study of the last days of Chet Baker, “Lament For The Living.”

“when the time comes to take the temperature of samizdat post-Beat publishing, Bill Shute/ Kendra Steiner Editions will be one of the central players” — David Keenan, Volcanic Tongue

Thanks to those longtime readers who bought and read the vintage chapbooks where these pieces were originally published. Though I have the original manuscripts, and have digital versions of the texts, I’m not sure that I have all the original chaps myself!

Though I’ve moved on to other areas of poetry since the original publication of the pieces in this collection, it is an excellent cross-section of where I was at that time, both a “best of” and something that shows diverse technique and an eclectic palette.

To quote one e-mail I rec’d from a stranger who bought the book and Googled my name to send me a comment, “The Chet Baker poem that opens the collection is one of the most insightful things I’ve ever read about Baker’s art…and the book moves through everything from a sonnet to a poem inspired by the painter Malevich which uses no nouns or pronouns…the final poem left me speechless. I’m so glad to have discovered this book. There is no one else doing anything in poetry remotely like you are doing.”

And while you are at it, try some of my more recent poetry books, long-form works such as RIVERSIDE FUGUE, COMPLEMENTARY ANGLES, and TWO SELF-PORTRAITS (AFTER MURILLO), available from any international Amazon outlet.
