Tarzan's Jungle Plane, prose poetry by Cloudbank editor Michael Malan, is now available. Michael's writing has appeared in numerous journals over the years and this, his second full-length collection, was published by Blue Light Press. Along with the title poem, this collection includes stories about "Chippewa Street," "Twins," "A Dangerous Woman," and "Richie Rich at Glacier Point."
Praise for this book include these comments by Richard Jones, author of Stranger on Earth: I love how real, how tangible the imaginary worlds of Michael Malan’s prose poems are—their immediacy and intimacy—as well as their accurate portrayal of the human desire to balance history, psychology, and imagination like so many plates spinning atop poles. These exhilarating paragraphs are a delight. As soon as one suspects the tug of easy irony, veils are swept away to astonish as the poet reveals vistas, insights, and what feels to me like truth.
