"Jason McCall's remarkable third collection Two-Face God is a modern-day reckoning with both of Janus's faces. These poems are full of the beginnings and transitions of doubt and disbelief-in our educations and institutions, in the various gods of applause and bedroom posters, in our youth and stubborn want to pretend we have a say in when it leaves. These deft and always sonorous poems create a new, American mythology, one that exists on the other side of double ply racial masks and the archways to segregated cities. And when the speaker of 'When Your Madden Running Back Retires,' says, 'Your video game grew up. / What happened to you?' we are left in our evolutions, looking for the answers we really don't want to find."- Adrian Matejka
