Banana Palace
Dana Levin

Banana Palace confronts the deep anxieties of our age with bemusement, incredulity, outrage, and hope. Observing the crisis of human appetite through the lenses of psychology and science fiction, she's disquieted at a world "ruled by a bipolar father-god, unconscious, suicidal."

The personal meets the collective in these poems: insane rants transform into contemporary oracular speech; a child who once hoarded candy grows into an adult who consumes the planet. Mutation, social media, eco-collapse, a dream of survivable "End Times": no less than the future of the body is at stake, bodies corporeal and political, ecological and spiritual.

For Banana Palace, Dana Levin

"Utterly her own, and utterly riveting." —The New Yorker

"...In rereading the book the necessity and relevance of Levin’s imagined apocalypses becomes immediately clear... Without letting us off the hook for the damage we do to each other and the world around us, Levin is able to look at the world we make with astonishment and awe, insistent on remaining alert to beauty." —The Rumpus
