From mermaids to lovers to skinny dogs to dervishes, Heather Hartley’s second collection, Adult Swim, gathers together unlikely characters whose different stories explore the connections we share—love, loss, and laughter. Engaging, playful, and often with a dark sense of humor, the brutal and beautiful, sensual and spiritual, live side by side in poems that shift that from lyric to sonnet to elegy.
