The evolution of Taylor Mali the poet could be measured in the number of people his poetry has directly inspired to be teachers. Or the increasing cast of high school and college-age students who perform his words in forensic competitions. It could be measured in national poetry slam competitions. But I believe the poet is only as good as his words, and there is no better showcase for the words of Taylor Mali than this incredible collection of live performances. This is Taylor in his element: performing in front of live and writhing audiences demanding and receiving all the rough, raw, and authentic passion of Taylor Mali's poetry. By Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz, from the liner notes.

Includes I Could Be a Poet, Voice of America, What Teachers Make, Falling In Love is Like Owning a Dog, Labeling Keys, Playing Scrabble with Eddie, Religious Sex, What My Father Said of Sex, Running a Race, I Nail My Palms, How to Write a Political Poem, Coming Out Duet, The Soul Bass, The Half Tail of Winchester, Totally Like Whatever, Time and Tears Enough, Seventh-Grade Viking Warrior, Running a Race, and Silver Lined Heart.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel Butcher | 2/20/2014

    " Other than the fact that I'm commited at this point, I'm really not sure why I'm keeping up with this series even if in audio format. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gene | 1/24/2014

    " Good book, but I'm finding that the story with Abeloth is just dragging and boring now. The Other story with the Jedi Council and the politics that are facing is very interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/30/2013

    " Crap went down in this book! Onto the next one! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russ | 12/6/2013

    " I don't really know what to think of this Fate of the Jedi series. It seems to be dragging on so long and kind of recycling the same storyline over and over. It was okay for the first couple books, but now I'm starting to wonder if there can possibly be a pay off. Maybe I've been reading too many "gritty" fantasy books lately--I know this isn't Star Wars style--but I feel like Lucas needs to bite the bullet and let some big characters die. Maybe it'll come in the grand finale, but I'm growing a little tired of the good guys coming out relatively unscathed all the time. Allston is a good writer, the limitations given him by Lucas notwithstanding. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron Vitale | 11/20/2013

    " This series hasn't been as strong as some of the past ones, but I do like where it's going regarding character development. As there's only so much you can do with major characters like Luke Skywalker, I did enjoy what Allston has done with what he could work with. Was a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher Murphy | 11/13/2013

    " Five stars for a nerdy Star Wars book you say?! How can it be? Because Aaron Allston is a barrel full of laughs. Just the right amount of humor and mystery; not taking itself seriously for a minute. And that's okay, cause I never really take these books seriously either! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jin | 10/15/2013

    " "This saga keeps getting better and better. Another masterpiece by Allston for a galaxy far, far away!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Siemers | 10/13/2013

    " Good developments. Furthered the story along and didn't drag it out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 OK Dad | 10/4/2013

    " The saga continues. Best part of his tome was showing my daughter the section on how Leia kicks butt with her lightsaber. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 9/10/2013

    " Aaron Allston, thank you sir for writing Star Wars novels. Best book in the series so far. Now onto Christie Golden. Sigh..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitchell | 8/16/2013

    " Not bad! I like Aaron Allston.. But I think that nine novels might be a bit much, but I'm such a sucker for Star Wars, I'm still buying them all. I just want to be Luke, is that too much to ask?! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany Petersen | 1/29/2013

    " Liked this book a lot; keeps you guessing about Vestara. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jose F. | 1/14/2013

    " Lots of loose ends at the end of the book. This series is mostly looking up, hope they don't go back to Nam Chorios, one of the most dreadful worlds in the GFFA. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 7/11/2009

    " Why did it take me so long to read this? Oh, because Allston wrote some boring passages that didn't get interesting. The ending was great, but he should really stick with the X-Wing books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Dodds | 5/25/2009

    " I really enjoyed reading it due to the good action descriptions as well as the political aspect of the star wars universe, with this series there has been the addition of more courtroom dialogue which If I can remember correctly hasn't been in any other star wars book series before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marin | 5/12/2007

    " Heehee! I love my Star Wars books, what can I say? I am hoping the next one is out soon. I did wish for a little more humor from Allston but the book and storyline were solid and fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bruce | 11/16/2005

    " One of the best parts was R2D2 giving C3PO a hard time at the end of the book. I would say that this is one of the better books so far in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gokhan | 4/16/2004

    " Good book of the series, can not wait to see what happens next. "
