Swift's Budavox: poems 1990-1999 explored sex, violence, art, and memory, to critical acclaim. His new collection, Café Alibi, written while the author lived abroad in Budapest and Paris, extends these concerns to include popular culture, history, desire, nostalgia, and the often competing claims of travel and home. Swift's crisp, elegant, deceptively calm language questions images of 'the child, the adult and the outside world' in ways both witty and disturbing. Café Alibi maps a stylish itinerary through exotic terrain, offering at once hostility and ultimate peace, poetry that puts love to the test and disarms our darkest fears.

Talk about Cafe Alibi


Raniconne
The poem "Sheer Speculation", an extended meditation on what happens to all our unreciprocated love, is stunningly funny, wickedly punning and altogether delightful. "...where do we half-hearts reside?" Todd Swift is a prodigious talent, and the gifts and rewards provided by this collection are many. The opening poem, "Letting Go" takes a new twist on the baby-bathwater connection - a must-read poem. Read Swift's "Cafe Alibi" and you will not be disappointed. It is by turns ruminative, tender and startling. Swift is a true original.
Flathan
No less breathtaking than the most intimate gaze of Roland Barthes, Swift's new collection of poems dares to go beyond Language by leaving us to dwell, if just for a moment, in a bantam world where we graze upon nostalgia, bend with desire, feed upon the barbiturate that can only be named longing--all the while being soothed by the lifeline of the lyric. Reading Cafe Alibi, we are privileged to visit an autarkic world where the aethetics of desire establish their own sense of time and order. A chilling and stunning read!
Briciraz
In this remarkable collection of poems, Todd Swift deftly moves from the seemingly banal and everyday to the sublime, exploring both in life and in love. The poems are deeply personal--and yet you will find yourself within the many layers of his tightly written verses. Mr. Swift's poems will transport you to other places and times, foreign and yet as close as home, and have you yearning to visit Café Alibi again and again, each time discovering the richness and wonder that is life itself.
Groll
The second book by Todd Swift, this volume is beautifully constructed. The poems are lovely and lyrical. Mr. Swift is a dedicated poet, and the book shows it!

The second book by this young poet; lovely poems and well arranged. A lyrical collection. Swift is a poet to watch.
