Description

Pineapple Express is Evelyn Lau's eighth collection of poetry.&nbspThe collection is rooted in the mind and its disorders.&nbspDepression, anxiety, and obsessive thinking have been explored widely in fiction and non-fiction, much less so in poetry.&nbsp"Pineapple Express" explores moods, medications and side effects, capturing the flatness of depression while making the language sing. It also explores the notion of mid-life, in all its manifestations: physical changes, psychological upheaval, the notion of becoming "invisible," and mortality.
