Overview

An Explosion of Toads: A Celebration of Eccentricity reads like seventy-one mini-novels on the out-of-the-ordinary people one can't stop watching on the street. Beginning with a tribute to Dene's father (Annie's grandfather), a champion eccentric himself, the authors' poems pay tribute to the people who have crossed their paths. Inevitably, they sometimes turn the spotlight on themselves, cynically marking the experiences and observations that fit into their theme. An anguished wife dismembers her husband's body; a bored couple worships their cat, Feng Shui "Century" farmers, ADD children, tarot readers, a pocket-change grocery shopper, hot steamy couples, packing house workers, victims of the storm, church ghosts, and passionate Nigerian Southern Baptists all tell their poetic stories. Ending sweetly, two loving, traveling friends of different races endure each other's hair spray and snoring. A quick, fascinating read by two eccentrics in their own right!

A hilarious but wise outlook on life, the poetry from this mom-daughter duo covers everything from inter-racial friendships, STD / sports car romance, clam-sex and body mirroring, to a woman in retaliation of abuse dismembering her luckless hubby. The sweet with the bitter from front cover to back! Defiantly a surprising twist from traditional poetry, from two special ladies with a healthy respect for the eccentric. Loved the book.
