Hagiography by Jen Currin
Book DescriptionHer acclaimed debut collection, The Sleep of Four Cities, announced the arrival of a fully formed, arresting new talent, and the poems in Jen Currin's new collection, Hagiography, see her trademark cunning wordplay and entirely contemporary take on the surrealist image moving into new and more personal territory. In a style that regularly pushes life's barely hidden strangeness into the light, Currin's poems present thought as a bright, emotionally complex event, a place where mind and sense and the natural world they move through become indistinguishable elements in a mysterious, familiar, vexing, fascinating, and continuous human drama. There are no saints in this hagiography -- only ghosts, sisters, spiders, birds ...This is an anti-biography. It starts with death and ends with birth. In between: life after life.
