In an earlier collection, "An Auto-erotic History of Swings," Patricia Young explored the sensual/sexual realms of humanity. With this new collection, she shifts her creative attention to the mating habits of animals, birds, fish and insects. With a sense of awe and bemusement, the poems in this collection address, embody and sometimes become the animals through which they speak. Each animal is a mystery; each poem expands on the strangeness of the mystery. Merging scientific evidence with speculative love stories, the poems are playful, insightful and ripe with reflections of our own animal selves. Young plays unabashedly with her readers' erotic imaginations to hilarious and poignant effect. Muscular, exotic, dense, rich and elastic - these poems are miniature, wildlife docudramas.
