Pretendersby Jeff Friedman
Pretenders interweaves narrative, lyric, and fable in poems that tell their magical stories with revelatory rhythms and precise diction. Surreal and darkly funny, these powerful poems create a dense world full of pretense, menace, deception, and double truths—in which we are all struggling to love each other enough to survive another day.
