“Kathleen Rooney’s collection of “whatchamacallits” is a true delight to read, funny, expressive, rhythmic, informative, opinionated, erudite and subtle. As Groucho once said, “The secret of life is honest and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.” Kathleen Rooney blends the deadly serious with the artistically ironic to give Where Are the Snows a playful urgency.”Charles Rammelkamp, The Lake
Catastrophe is a highly moving elegy to what endures in the face of disasters — disasters that range from simply growing up to fleeing human-made environmental devastation. Who hears our hearts? Who gives us light? This novella shows that these gifts of human connection can endure, even if the world falls apart.Kate Finegan, CAROUSAL
“In this chronicle of uprooting, discovery, and practice of her Spanish tongue, we witness the bravery one must stumble through to reclaim oneself in a threatening culture preoccupied with borders, grammars, and teaching the English tongue. I can’t think of a better poetry collection offering comfort, hope, heartache, and outrage for the last to know or the last to learn their ancestral tongue.”Amy Bobeda, Full Stop

“Whatever else it is—and it can be a lot of things—I like for poetry to be entertaining. Above all else, I want this book to be fun. I want people to get their money’s worth.
