About this title


This collection combines the appeal of archetype and the charm of wit with a great dose of wisdom. Sherbondy's characters, a familiar lot of fairytale and beloved heroes and heroines, are navigated through the straits of reality by an ironic and gentle presence. The lessons learned from these poems are not unlike those learned from the fairytales: Snow White still finds that you can't take anything at face value, but instead of confronting this painful truth through the vehicle of the shiny apple, she ends up at Planned Parenthood because her prince has no health insurance. Sherbondy's poems are filled with subtle and pleasurable music, complementing the twist of beloved narrative into resonant truths.
