Synopsis

Poetry. "PHANTOM CAMERA searches for ways to escape the traps of autobiographical self-absorption while retaining the warmth and energy of personal narrative. Bolina's speakers are often melancholy and estranged, yet charmingly ironic about their estrangement. Drama—both funny and touching-arises from their efforts to stay safe while longing for human connection."—Mark Halliday
