In a career that has earned her accolades, honorary degrees, and
awards from both fellow poets and everyday poetry lovers, Nikki
Giovanni has established herself as a writer who can entertain and
challenge, inform and inspire. Sometimes controversial, sometimes
ethereal, but always beautiful, her poems move readers of all hues
With "Bicycles," she's collected poems that serve as a companion
to her 1997 "Love Poems." An instant classic, that book--romantic,
bold, and erotic--expressed notions of love in ways that were
delightfully unexpected. In the years that followed, Giovanni
experienced losses both public and private. A mother's passing, a
sister's, too. A massacre on the campus at which she teaches. And
just when it seemed life was spinning out of control, Giovanni
redis-covered love--what she calls the antidote. Here romantic
love--and all its manifestations, the physical touch, the emotional
pull, the hungry heart--is distilled as never before by one of our
most talented poets.
