Jessie Janeshek channels the madcap dead of occult Hollywood, and her ouija board is a synthesizer, summoning Clara Bow, Jean Harlow, Lana Turner, Veronica Lake, Carole Lombard, Marilyn, and Madonna to her mysterious House of Wax. These are daring poems calling on Dracula, drugs, and Dick Tracy; a velvet underground of film, fantasy, and nostalgia. the new wave and gothic invention of Madcap establishes Janeshek as one of contemporary poetry's great risk-takers. Madcap is her third full-length collection.
