In Adam in the Garden, AE Hines lyrically examines the thresholds we cross: from childhood to adulthood, youth to old age, from rejection to self-acceptance. Using both personal narrative and persona, and with a variety of forms, these poems are rich in both eros and pathos as Hines explores queer love and joy that is hard won. Whether set in the garden of the body, our fragile earth, or the biblical Eden, these poems fall through gaps in their subjects to reveal the extraordinary that is hidden in the middle of everyday life.

"With Adam in the Garden, AE Hines dares to imagine a new Eden, as his speaker finds himself “middle-aged and queer,” in poems that weave sound and image into tightly crafted narratives. Whether confronting betrayal and loss, sex and desire, or even environmental collapse, threads of hope and gratitude run throughout these verses, as does the speaker’s anxiety about the fragility of what binds." — Dorianne Laux, Life on Earth
