SUNBATHING ON TYRONE POWER'S GRAVE
Dower’s fourth collection, Sunbathing on Tyrone
Power’s Grave, death has never felt so alive!
Alluring titles to haunting last lines, the poems in
Dower’s fourth collection soothe, terrify, and always
surprise, revealing the extraordinary within the
ordinary. Acclaimed for combining the accessible and
profound, humor and heartache, Dower’s poetry continues
to be quirky, dark, sexy, disarmingly candid, and
moving, and here she explores the landscape of death and
its intersections with love, longing, obsession,
sadness, joy, and beauty. Wise and soaring, these poems
bravely imagine another life beyond the one we all know
where even the angels surrounding the graves are wearing
bikinis, smoking Kool Lights.
