In this new collection, Gnostic gospels collide with the Oxford Happiness Test and Buddhist treatises on emptiness; Beasley talks extensively about his son; and both Schopenhauer's philosophical nihilism and The Purpose Driven Life are brought to bear on the horrors of the Sandy Hook massacre. At once fascinating, disturbing, and humorous, this collection begins with a "shamanic healing" pamphlet offering insights into reuniting one's "soul parts" following "soul retrieval" and leaves no spiritual stone unturned delving into those rich concepts. Beasley ultimately uses strong Catholic ideology and philosophy to richly investigate, question, and challenge these ideas. This collection continues Beasley's postmodern spiritual meditations in the tradition of John Donne, George Herbert, Emily Dickinson, and T.S. Eliot. He is known as a foremost poet writing at the intersection of faith, science and poetry. Beasley is the recipient of the University of Georgia Press Contemporary Poetry Series Award; the Colorado Prize for Poetry; the Ohio State University Press/Journal Award; three Pushcart Prizes; and fellowships from the NEA and the Artist Trust of Washington. Beasley's previous BOA book, Theophobia was named a finalist for the Washington State Book Award, a "Top Ten Best Books of 2012" by Image Journal, a "Notable Book of 2014" by Poetry Northwest.
