Not Every Woman Swooned
Audio CD Version: Poems read by author Elaine Heveron
Elaine Heveron's poems are so winning and persuasive that as you read them you feel like the character in one of her poems who is won over by music that has the appeal of a favorite / cousin on his way to the / beach / and somehow / you / got to go along. She captures the feeling of being simultaneously / both hungry and satisfied, and her heart remains open both to life's joys and to the homeless sleeping on our freezing streets in the winter. This book is filled with a rare generosity of spirit.
Elaine Heveron's latest collection of poems is refreshingly honest and has a complex simplicity that feels so in the moment. You joyfully travel with her as she captures her observations with a very jazz-like stream of consciousness. You will find me in my favorite chair with this delightful book again and again.
Elaine is a terrific writer with the rare ability to capture mood and evoke feelings in a vivid manner. For over 30 years I've had the pleasure of enjoying her work and watching it grow. I find myself returning to her poetry often when I feel an urge for renewal.
