Publisher:  The Bunny & The Crocodile Press Type: 


Copyright:  March 1, 1999 ISBN-13:  0938572245

The search for those angels who are wheels transports the reader through a landscape of eccentric family members, the world of Gertrude Stein and Paul Bowles, and Alenier's own brand of Eden.

The Word Works

"'The story simmers like stew,' Karren Alenier writes in her poem 'Ram Caught in Thicket.' And these poems too are a rich, simmering stew made up of family, far places, and literary legends. Looking for Divine Transportation is a book vibrant with Life."
Linda Pastan, author of Carnival Evening: New and Selected Poems 1968-1998.

"Karren Alenier's poems are ruminations on the bonds of familial and universal kinship, to which she is heir and witness. As in her marvelous poem, 'Ana Marraksia: I am from Marrakech,' she pulls us up into the 'worldtree' of identities, rich in the wordfest of ceremony and communal voices, full of tonal beats, and grounded in couterpoint like jazz in the 'bluephrase' of regret and yearning."
James Ragan, author of Lusions

"'The world is my neighborhood.' With these words Alenier perfectly describes Looking for Divine Transportation. Her witty poems, populated with people telling their stories: Grandma Etta and Grandpa Sol; Abraham and Issac; Adam and Eve; Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas; and the poet/traveler, herself journey to Eden, Baltimore, Casablanca, Paris, the deep south. Although the book's metaphor may be geographical, the vehicles of this transport aren't planes or trains—but words—which spring from a divine, God-inspired, profound, passionate place—Alenier's imagination."
Jane Shore, author of Music Minus One
