“Book Review: Orgy Porgy”

I’ve written and deleted this review half a dozen times. As if no words could do justice to this collection. Scott Hobbs Bourne was once my favorite skateboarder, and as he grew; so did I, allowing him to evolve into not only one of the favorite authors and poets, but an inspiration as a man, a husband, and father.

Orgy Porgy is the complete collection of a bi-monthly column that ran from 2007 to 2011 in the French publication SOMA and five other literary works previously published in magazines such as Jpeople, Juxtapoz, and Ala Champfest. Through these stories and tales you become more than a reader, and Scott more than just the author. These become letters written directly to you, with Scott sharing bits and pieces of his life in Paris. By enveloping yourself in these stories, you gain a piece of Scott’s wildly entertaining life, and these letter almost become correspondence between you.

It’s hard when reading Scott’s work to not feel like he is an old friend, as he is so open and raw, so honest and powerful as each word becomes party of the stories he tells on the page. Coming from reading “A Room With No Windows”, this is a reinforcement that Scott is not only a poet on the page, but an artist working in the medium of the human experience.
