The Book of Rabbits
Amazon Digital Services LLC - Kdp Print Us, Apr 17, 2019 - 48 pages
Somewhere between a research project and a concise study of loneliness, The Book of Rabbits examines the heartbreaking brevity of sadness and seclusion. Through the retelling of the famed medical hoax surrounding the life of Mary Toft and her curious case of birthing rabbits, this collection of poems strives to answer the singular question of, "why is it, when some people put their bodies on the line is it called heroic and when others do the same, it is considered an act of lunacy?" Vince Trimboli's collection of poetry lives between the worlds of 1700's Surry England and current day Appalachia, focusing in on the intersection of poverty, mental health, illiteracy, privilege, and the lengths we are willing to go to escape them.
