About Book

Book Description
Poetry. Although firmly rooted in the real, Lillian Necakov's evocations of 'movie magic' prove irresistible in these 40 poems and 5 collages. Ranging across dozens of films -- from Wim Wender's WINGS OF DESIRE and Jim Jarmusch's DOWN BY LAW to Hitchcock's ROPE and Hawk's TO HAVE AND TO HAVE NOT, -- Lillian Necakov's language, steeped in the comic of the banal, has absurdity for breakfast. "From the fifth row you can see blood coming off the rope / silence / then the flashbulbs / a glove-full of punishment / a left hook / fifteen rounds of rage / and the camera always stays in the ring with Jake" ("Confession," After Martin Scorsese's RAGING BULL, 1980). "This is powerful, disarmingly intimate, and just plain cool poetry" -- Noel S. Baker, screenwriter, HARD CORE LOGO. Lillian Necakov lives in Toronto and is currently working on a novel and a screenplay.
