Swan Electric

By April Bernard

W. W. Norton & Company, Paperback, 9780393325089, 88pp.

Publication Date: December 17, 2003

Description
April Bernard's idiosyncratic and profoundly emotional voice combines flights of fancy, moral sternness, and wit in broadly explorative poems from a memoir sequence about the East Village in the 1980s, to "disheveled" sonnets of self-interrogation, to darkly comic hallucinations.
