About this title:

Synopsis: Affectionate yet satirical, this sequence of poems focuses on a family of giants and, in particular, on a young giant woman and her efforts to conceal from her normally sized lover how tall she truly is. The witty verses are infused with warmth and transcend a reader's everyday reality and experiences. As disturbing and fabulous as a classic fairy tale, this gathering of work showcases the fanciful aspects of contemporary manners.

About the Author: Anne Kennedy is a novelist, award-winning short story writer and poet, editor, literary critic, and scriptwriter. Her most recent poetry sequence is Sing-song. She lives in Honolulu, Hawaii.
