"Did You Put the Weasels Out?", Niall Bourke

"Did You Put the Weasels Out?", Niall Bourke

Poetry. Fiction. An epic for an age without heroes, DID YOU PUT THE WEASELS OUT? is a celebration of the modern mythology that takes place in every small town. A modern update of the 8th century Gaelic saga The Taáin, written in Alexander Pushkin's fiendish 'Onegin sonnet,' Niall Bourke takes strict form to the extreme, and turns it into a hilarious, sharp-sighted satire of ordinary people's neuroses, indulgences and four-AM fears. Abandon your preconceptions: Bourke's prose-poetry operatic-verse-novel breaks all the rules—while managing to keep to them at the same time. Both traditional and undeniably of our time, DID YOU PUT THE WEASELS OUT? is poetry that celebrates the playfulness and uncertainty of being alive.
