By Reader on January 29, 2010
Format: Paperback
It's difficult to describe something so wise and melancholy at times, as buoyant but these words bounce, despite their hard-realities. The poems are smart and the voice of them has centuries tucked into its range, but that doesn't stop them from being fun. They read with a fluidity and ease, they are like the musicals they often employ. Like a good musical, sadness and regret carry themselves with grace in the right song.

Read about a grandmother wooed by Sinatra, and just know that Annie Get your Gun will never be the same after Jenike.

Every sorrow has its music, but in Ghost of Fashion, we see sorrow's music is sometimes laughter. These poems contain a good story-teller's repertoire about what is interesting in the selection of detail and with Jenike's wit and keen intellect, even sorrow can be rendered ludicrous, savvy-silly, with a notable bounce in its step.

These poems are glow-in-the-dark beachballs on the night-ocean and sometimes, even the moon envies them.
