Vacation of a Lifetime

Andrea Brady, Author Salt Publishing $12.95 (144p) ISBN 978-1-876857-16-5
Effecting an off-site sifting of virulently sexualized, life-style-propping policies that kill people, Andrea Brady takes readers on a Vacation of a Lifetime, her first book of poems. An American poet now teaching in London, Brady works past First World lies and representations, taking idioms and ideology and warping them back from outside: ""bullets/ bought by staff at the heart shaped cafe."" Throughout, the book's deep engagement with lyric as valid and viable cultural expression, despite its imperial history in English, evinces a belief in imagining other truths: ""If you can reach/ to pull your presents toward you, I am there/ at the breaking point, floodlit with you and different/ as the world is now: I found/ for you a brighter hemisphere.""
