Bill Tremblay's "Shooting Script: Door of Fire" is unlike any collection of poems previously published. In it, voice becomes camera to reveal the smoky world of Diego Rivera's Mexico with its erotic and political tensions brightly drawn as background for a dance macabre involving, among others, Leon Trotsky, Rivera, the actress Paulette Goddard, Surrealist kingpin Andre Breton, and the strange and beautiful Frida Kahlo.The lens of Tremblay's attention follows these characters as they circle inside their mortal questions, failings, and desires, never quite touching or saying what they intend, but always somehow working toward an integration of the personal, political, and aesthetic obsessions that drive them on. "Bill Tremblay has a fantastic grasp of the way human psyches, especially those in distress, move." - Robert Bly. Bill Tremblay is the author of six previous books of poetry, among them "Crying in the Cheap Seats", "Duhamel", and "Rainstorm Over the Alphabet". He teaches in the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Colorado State University.
