Conundrums of Indignant Bliss by D.J. Haliday

About the Audiobook

What began as a live reading of the poetry, organically evolved into an innovative audiobook/concept album that transcends the poems themselves. New life breathed into them by Haliday’s vibrant narration against the masterful improvisational compositions of Sean Egan, who plays every instrument except for a guest guitar appearance by Josh McCabe, the words leap into multi-dimensional soundscapes, brimming with raw power and affording a richer accessibility, metamorphosing the Conundrums of Indignant Bliss experience into an epic journey.

recalls works by such writers as Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Gregory Corso. Like them, Haliday employs long, loose lines; unexpected phrasing; wordplay; and musical rhythms. And like them, he defies the conventional and mainstream.” — Kirkus Reviews
