Jennifer brings a touch of honest angst, emotional logic and candor to her first book of story poems, Love, Lust, Longing & Truth. The book contains original artwork created for the poetry by NY artist, Chantal Calato.
Influenced by Charles Bukowski, Bernadette Mayer and Harold Pinter alongside Mark Twain, Ranier Maria Rilke and Milan Kundera, Jennifer brings a touch of acerbic reality, mixed with longing and realistic romanticism to her stream of consciousness.
Her work evokes a feeling, a smell or emotion that leaves you at the edge of what's comfortable.
The book will not only challenge your perception of poetry but also the social constructs around those four words - love, lust, longing and truth -- which underpin our collective human experience.
Read a full review of the book on Kirkus Reviews where the book is described as a "debut volume of poetry explores the emotional highs and lows of love and all its incarnations."
