In Kim Dower's fourth collection, Sunbathing on Tyrone Power's Grave, death has never felt so alive Alluring titles to haunting last lines, the poems in Dower's fourth collection soothe, terrify, and always surprise, revealing the extraordinary within the ordinary.
Acclaimed for combining the accessible and profound, humor and heartache, Dower's poetry continues to be quirky, dark, sexy, disarmingly candid, and moving, and here she explores the landscape of death and its intersections with love, longing, obsession, sadness, joy, and beauty. Wise and soaring, these poems bravely imagine another life beyond the one we all know where even the angels surrounding the graves are wearing bikinis, smoking Kool Lights.
