Pirate Rain takes Jennifer Maiden’s concern with political power and personal accountability into new territory, as her characters Clare Collins and George Jeffreys wake to nightmarish scenarios in New Orleans, Rio, Beirut, Paris or Somalia, and Hillary Clinton and Eleanor Roosevelt have intimate conversations on the campaign trail leading to the Obama presidency about the relationship between the public and the personal worlds. The most politically concerned poet in contemporary Australian writing, Maiden works new territory in these these sequences - from the global recession and the US presidential campaign to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the continuing wars on terrorism and drugs - with her characteristic dexterity, humour and eye for the absurd.
