From GG Megaphone Carl Annarummo -

"A poem by Brian Foley is a glimpse into the life of a professional eavesdropper. Each is a chewed down dossier roasted on a pit over a beerlight. Brian Foley is the love-child of a wide-ranging cast of characters book-ended by Rosmarie Waldrop and the previous groundskeeper of Seekonk Speedway. His poems are often excruciatingly uproarious and in turn, collected in its ability to humble you. Finally a collection of poems that sits you down and says, "I know, because I've been there!" Why are you still reading this? Buy the book. Don't even think about it."
