Book DescriptionNominated for the Gerald Lampert Award and the Alberta Book Award for Poetry This is a tale of love ? unrequited, of course, like all the best stories. Our Juliet? A lonely elephant, newly arrived at the Calgary Zoo from Holland,with a penchant for moonlight escapes. Her Romeo? The wooden Maytag Man statue on Calgary?s 9th Avenue, with his sad eyes, his oaken thighs, his aloofness. This book, the first from Jill Hartman, is a tragi-comic narrative poem about pachyderm passion. Nina Simone, Pig Latin, German opera and a chorus of Canadian poets play in the background. Incense, speculaas cookies and cheap flowers scent the air. And goddesses, myrmidons and shipwrecks appear with some frequency.
