Yum 22 May 2011
By Beau LeBlanc - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mike McGee helped me discover my profound love of life and poetry. I heard him live and thought, "I don't know if a book of poems can capture his incredible voice and impeccable comedic timing." IN SEARCH OF MIDNIGHT blew my expectations out of the water! His voice is embedded in every line; in and in between every word. In addition to many of his spoken word standards, THE MIKE MCGEE HANDBOOK OF AWESOME includes Mike's job resume (hell yeah), some poignant little factoids (scrabble stuff), and his lesser known, yet extremely awesome, poems that split my heart with tears similar to the way he splits my sides with laughter. I like him like...well you'll just have to read it :) SERIOUSLY!!! This is the new generation of poetry; the future of words. If you love life or hate life, if you love/hate words, NAY, if you DEVOUR words like bacon cheeseburgers, or if, perhaps, you enjoy pineapple, then this is the book for you!

Handbook of Awesome Indeed 29 May 2011
By Eric Wilson - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mighty Mike McGee's "In Search of Midnight" is a standout classic in the world of poetry, Mr. McGee is a natural performer and that carries directly to the page in this volume of some of the most slap you in the face poetry that you will ever read. This book laughs with you, it cries with you, and sometimes it gets all sexy on you(especially in the poem "Puddin". A really wonderful addition to any poetry collection, order it, seriously.
Fantastic Book! 3 July 2012

Format: Paperback
Are you stuck working a dead end minimum wage job? Are you unemployed and yet still working full-time as a poet?
"In Search of Midnight" by The Mighty Mike Mcgee truly speaks the voice of the common man. It has all of the humor you would expect mixed with gut wrenching realities. From hanging out with Jesus to working the graveyard shift at a convenience store; This book takes you not necessarily on the journey of a poet, but rather the journey of a man discovering his passion for life through poetry.
It's safe to say that Mike Mcgee has been in all of our shoes before, from losing jobs to living at home.
But don't let that fool you!
He's dirty when you want it, funny when you don't, and beautiful when you need it.
This book is a must read for all inspiring poets and those just stuck in a rut.

Format: Paperback
Mike McGee makes poetry fun again. It's impossible not to feel good about life with this book in your hands. McGee will make you laugh harder than you thought you could, but my favorite thing about his poems is their ability to make me feel good about being human. McGee carves a niche for himself with In Search for Midnight, his first full-length collection. As hard as it is to believe, McGee found a way to channel his larger-than-life stage presence into his written work - it literally jumps off the page and begs to be read aloud. Personal favorites include Mycrophone, Dirty Dimes and Dear Neil Armstrong.

One of the coolest things about this book is its refusal to cater to traditional structure. Poems are interspersed with advice on being awesome, making this the perfect handbook for poets and geeks alike.
