The Private Parts of Girls PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Private Parts of Girls free pdf The Private Parts of Girls follows Alice down the rabbit hole, Kassandra onto Agamemnon's boat, and Red Riding Hood into the forest: it conjures the most mysterious landscape of all, the mind of a girl - a girl who might be a dancer, a warrior-bride, a transatlantic traveller, the Messiah, sick of being compared to Sylvia Plath, airborne, born in space, or lost in a sunlit field, discovering love. From Battlestar Galactica to The Clash, the poems mix tart, smart pop culture goodies into the dreamspace of fairy tales, as they take us on a journey - hallucinatory with culture lag - through the mind and body of a modern girl. This is poetry for Buffy fans (and Twilight haters), for readers who grew up with Angela Chase's voice-over for their lives and Air's soundtrack for The Virgin Suicides on their iPods, for everyone who ever wondered if Beauty secretly was the Beast.
