ThunderbirdPaperback - 2013
Our childhood such a large cellar with no bulb.
Jane Miller brings a painterly eye to the elegiac in an ambitiously linked sequence that explores ecstasy and desire, memory and loss, the ancient and the ultramodern. Suggesting the thunderbird of Native American lore as readily as modern American warfare, Thunderbird is a book of mourning and loss redeemed by the body and the mind.
Jane Miller is the author of nine books of poetry, including A Palace of Pearls (Copper Canyon Press, 2005), which won the Audre Lorde Prize. Miller teaches at the University of Arizona and lives in Tucson, Arizona.
