Orioles in the Oranges is an exquisitely told story of a destructive modern love, woven together with a famous M├ętis legend of Pelee Island - involving a young woman who plunged to her death in Lake Erie after being abandoned by her English husband. Janisse's own Metis heritage, as well as her relationship with Detroit's vibrant underground, creates a tone throughout the poems that can only be described as defiant and sensual. The poems are accentuated with some of the area's shipwrecks and tales of rum running and drug smuggling, adding a dark and intriguing texture to the work.
