Hottest Summer in Recorded History, The
The Hottest Summer in Recorded History by Elizabeth Bachinsky
With her signature eye for irony and sensuality, Elizabeth Bachinsky's latest book of poetry, "The Hottest Summer in Recorded History," balances a youthful playfulness with observational maturity. Bachinsky strings together seemingly non-sequitur images, capturing in these poems the commonality of raw intimacy, dark humour and a sense of immediacy. Her vision is unapologetically bold, finding the erotic in everyday moments and keenly capturing the complicated truths of life in a powerfully candid style.
