With fable-like miniature stories and short lyric poems, Shannon Bramer creates a world littered with stolen pears and prosthetic arms and inhabited by Kindness scientists and hot-air-balloon operators. The poems invoke a world of childhood delights and demons in the context of grown-up fears and appetites: heartbreak, loss, jealousy, and old-fashioned sibling rivalry. Readers will find the hopelessly misunderstood Love the Clown (never goes out without his red wig) and Noni, a forlorn young man who can't stop crying. But while sadness plays a starring role, the true hero of the collection is the imagination; its transformative powers warm widows and drunken gods and designated mourners. Readers won't forget The Refrigerator Memory: the icebox cometh to warm the heart."@en ;
