Notes of a Refugee: Poems
ISBN: 0773400028

Edwin Mellen Pr. 1992

"Notes" is populated by many people: the narrator of the title poem, a stranger to his life and language

a nameless divorcee, hiding her loneliness with small talk

a skiptracer, obsessed with tracking down debtors

an unknown messiah, whose text is the daily newspaper

an aging group of bachelors, making their weekly futile trip to a Saturday night dance

a little boy, living through a memorable summer afternoon. The poems reverberate with the Chicago neighbourhoods which are their backdrop, and show a keen interest in psychology.
