This poetry collection is at turns surreal, pious, silly, and heartbreaking, but always true to its own logic, even as it creates and expands that logic as it goes. It's the most personal work Devendra Banhart has ever created.

It weaves together awed autobiographical sketches so that a distinct sensibility and experience emerge, while simultaneously setting the reader free to traverse an imaginative wilderness. The poems each stand on their own as distinct and bizarre singular shards, while also accruing resonance.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be Devendra? Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be yourself? This book.

Praise for Weeping Gang Bliss Void Yab-Yum

The lizard mafia protects him. Garudas taught him music. Fallen angels bring flowers made of wheels within wheels — where, he asks us, have you put the laundry detergent? All the rides in this county fair are plated with gold.
— Diane di Prima, author of Spring and Autumn Annals
Devendra’s poems are a luminous blend of casual surrealism, spiritual curiosity and the mock simplicity of Richard Brautigan. Like his music, his writing glows with the pure light of a crazy diamond.
— Byron Coley
