Desert Rose, Butterfly Storm

A farewell letter to a departing son, and a scream of fury against the age: Desert Rose, Butterfly Storm is a symphony of chaos and a lyric loving plea, an anthem for the age of terror and laser-guided death. Soaring and bit- ter, sweet and savage, David Manicom’s new book of poetry follows his Governor-General’s Award-nominated The Burning Eaves with a remark- able departure. Riffing and sampling on Yeats and Radiohead, Eliot and Ginsburg, the Bible and the Pentagon, Manicom has composed a searing new Howl for our times.
