'I am a woman haunted by her past
I am a man who spends his life extricating himself from difficult situations
I am a sensuous Parisian courtesan
I am a youngster in Nicaragua who dreams of flying like a bird
I am a radical New York poet with a long suffering wife . . .'
Poetry made of synopses from TV guides, rewritten in the present tense and first person.
An enigmatic collection of stories that seem to offer a multitude of possibilities. 'I' become the protagonist in every mystery, disaster, dilemma, plan, or circumstance described.Mysteriously, I lose myself in narrative when I locate myself as subject. My identity seems fluid. I am man, I am woman, I am murderer, surgeon, surfer, slut. I am loose and yielding, elastic. I am brittle, empty, like glass.
I am the story that happens to me. I am the story that happens to be.
'Seductive. Hilarious. Melancholic.'Susan Fereday, self-published, 2000
