This collection of poetry by the editor of EXPANSIVE POETRY, focuses
on life in New York—in language alternately hip, and nostalgic, the ten
characters in “Nomads” focus on abortion, divorce, the forces threatening the neighborhoods, and the need to preserve the family; in “The Psychiatrist At the Cocktail Party: A Dramatic Sequence,” Feirstein presents in formal verse a hilarious, and disturbing cast of urban professionals, sexual bandits, opportunists and international terrorists.
