| Born in a windswept Iowa prairie town famous for 4,000 simultaneous monologues twenty-four seven Marvin R. Hiemstra, poet, humorist, philosopher, social commentator, and entertainer, is in love with words. Founding Editor-in-Chief of the Bay Area Poets Seasonal Review Marvin performs and publishes across the United States and Europe. Dana Gioia called the DVD, French Kiss Destiny, Marvin's kaleidoscope of poetry/humor filmed in San Francisco, "superb work." The Tower Journal praised Poet Wrangler: droll poems: "Marvin R. Hiemstra is at his best in this collection, serving up humor, double-entendre, and hours of delight." This book offers sheer joy. What more could you want?" Kate McDonald said, "It's the laughing and thinking at the same time that I love."
