Poetry. "In THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING Josie Kearns's poems take flight on insect wings, ponder geckos eating fireflies, finite parts of quantum, the Hubble Telescope, a parallel universe where her mother retires to Belgium, and the mysteries of Dark Matter. More surprises are in store for the reader as Kearns meditates on Mirasaki Shikibu, Japanese woman author of The Tale of Genji. Termite Love and a Babylonian god named Sin do not escape the poet's scrupulous attention. This is an exhilarating collection of sharp-edged poems that linger in memory. Brava"--Colette Inez.

Her work has been awarded four Creative Artist Grants from the Michigan Council for the Arts, three Hopwood Awards, a Cowden Fellowship, a grant to the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, D.C., a Detroit Women Writers Fellowship and numerous writer-in-residencies from the Ragdale Foundation.

She currently teaches writing and literature at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Review:

While others sleep, Josie roams the world of the unconscious bringing back reports on the state of just about everything. So, if you have been wondering about the efficacy of divining rods and other inventions, or what manner of fabulous stuff has found its way to the Loss Universe, these are the poems to read. They will inform and delight you. They will also reassure you that all manner of thing is well because a poet as gifted as this is minding the business of the word. --Lorna Goodison
