In Adam in the Garden, AE Hines lyrically examines the thresholds we cross: from childhood to adulthood, youth to old age, from rejection to self-acceptance. Using personal narrative and persona, and with a variety of forms, these poems are rich in both eros and pathos as the poet explores queer love and joy that is hard won. Set in the garden of the body, our fragile earth, and the biblical Eden, these poems conspire to reveal the extraordinary hidden in every moment.
