Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns

by

Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns Cover

 

Staff Pick

Andrea Gibson writes poetry that will break your heart into tiny little pieces, then glue it all back together again. In Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns, she tackles what it means to love and lose, human rights, and the reality of depression. She will empower you and inspire you, but most of all she will reach out and let you know that you're not alone.
Recommended by Koa, Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Andrea Gibson's dynamic and energetic first book, Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns, challenges us to not only read, but to react. Hauntingly vivid, the poems march through a soldier's lingering psychological wounds, tackle the curious questions of school children on the meaning of hate, and tangle with a lover's witty and vibrant description of longing. Gibson's poems deconstruct the current political climate through stunning imagery and careful crafting. With the same velocity, the poignant and vacillating love poems sweep the air out of the room. It's word-induced hypoxia. Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns whispers with a bold and unforgettable internal voice rich with the kind of questioning that inspires action.

Synopsis:

Gibson's dynamic and timely new work is a energetic collection of stirring and introspective poetry. Hauntingly vivid, her poems deconstruct the current political climate through stunning imagery and careful crafting.
