9781555973230: My Favorite Apocalypse: Poems

A lively, fresh, and outspoken debut, My Favorite Apocalypse reveals the poetical influence of W.B. Yeats as well as that of Mick Jagger. "Everything in my life led up / to my inappropriate laughter," Rosemurgy writes. With a deep sense of irony and sharp-edged wit, she shows readers why the cruelties of relationships, inevitable bad luck, and soul-searching rock-n-roll deserve both cynicism and reverence.

About the Author:

Catie Rosemurgy's poetry has appeared in Best American Poetry 1997, Ploughshares, Verse, and Poetry Northwest. She teaches at Northwest Missouri State University and co-edits the Laurel Review.

Review:

“Rosemurgy is best when she speaks outright. 'Show don't tell,' goes the old mandate, but Rosemurgy understands the power of telling directly . . . A clear, authentic, compelling voice.” ―Billy Collins

“Anyone fearful of prodigious imagination should get out of the way of My Favorite Apocalypse fast . . . [Rosemurgy] is bluesy, Plathy, magnificently unabashed, yet possessed of real gifts for rhapsody and tenderness.” ―Rodney Jones

My Favorite Apocalypse is full of wonders. It has a confiding, urgent, lit-up tone.” ―Amy Gerstler

My Favorite Apocalypse is seductive: I couldn't stop reading such luscious, insouciant work.” ―Alice Fulton
