April Bernard (Author)

Overview | Inside the Book

"Bernard has written a gorgeous, tough, haunting book."—Frank Bidart

April Bernard's idiosyncratic and profoundly emotional voice combines flights of fancy, moral sternness, and wit in broadly explorative poems—from a memoir sequence about the East Village in the 1980s, to "disheveled" sonnets of self-interrogation, to darkly comic hallucinations.
