Poetry. "Vladimir Swirynsky skillfully captures in 104 hard-lived pages the sprit of what Ferlinghetti called the moment when the people of the world 'attained the title of suffering humanity.' CHURCH OF THE BACKYARD FIRE is a book of modern day wisdom, a compendium of psalms for a secular world sorely in need of the sacred. Swirynsky serves as our Virgil, our guide, our chronicler, whose verses examine the nine circles of anguish, passion, and joy with a fervent heart, a sense of mischief, and a disquieting realization that the worst has not passed but is waiting for us just out of eyesight"--Frank Varela.
