Elvis Presley’s Hips & Mick Jagger’s Lips by Susana H. Case: “Elvis Presley’s Hips & Mick Jagger’s Lips is rock and roll in poetry. The poems cover a range of subjects related to music, organized into three sections: ‘The Honey Thing,’ (relationships); ‘Mood Alteration,’ (substance abuse and shifts in emotion); and ‘Write a Song About It,’ (the music business and its relationship to other aspects of life). Each poem also departs in unique ways from rock and roll, its lyrics and history.” (April 2013)
