Poetry. MADNESS AND LOVE IN MAIDA VALE celebrates Todd Swift's 50th birthday—and over 30 years of published poetry—in style, with new poems extending his striking range. Moving across religion, marital love, sexual desire, mental health, Maida Vale, and the vexing issue of poetry itself, the collection sustains, over long sequences and brief lyrics, a restless sense of achievement.
