About this product
- DescriptionA rich collection of poetic images from a debut author. - Kirkus Reviews Meditative, playful and strange, the poems in Counterfeit Skin blend three distinct identities. There are observational poems, deeply aware of lineage and history, friendship and family, travel and inhabitance, and the struggle to be a self tugged in many directions. Then there are poems by an often awestruck lover, who spurs the imagination on to confess love as a cephalopod but also fears what's unsayable in love, what love forgets to say until it's too late. Finally, there are poems that marvel at peculiar cultural artifacts, from kung fu and cartoons, to comic books, magic shops and post cards. Acclaimed author of We Are All Good If They Try Hard Eugh, poet Mike Young describes this collection as a book with a great core heart...a surprising heart, the way the personal/historic concerns emerge as something directed at a lover, the way they get an urgency from a self t just trying to understand itself for its own sake but to be able to cast out toward ather.
