9781597092302: Injecting Dreams Into Cows

Jessy Randall's poems are smart, funny, weird, and friendly. She writes about robots, love, friendship, video games, Muppets, motherhood, Pippi Longstocking, and the peculiar seductiveness of old Fisher Price wooden people on Ebay. SheÆs partial to found poems, prose poems, and short poems—bite-sized mouthfuls of surprising lyricism. Sometimes sexy, often hilarious, strange and yet familiar, the poems in Injecting Dreams into Cows will leave you "gasping with delight and deliciousness."

About the Author:

Jessy Randall’s collection of poems A Day in Boyland was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award. Her other books include a young adult novel, The Wandora Unit, about poetry nerds in high school, and a collection of collaborative poems, Interruptions, written with Daniel M. Shapiro. Randall’s poems have been hung from trees, made into rock songs by garage bands, used in library advertisements, and sold in gumball machines. Her writing has appeared in Asimov’s, Flurb, Many Mountains Moving, McSweeney’s, Mudfish, Opium, Painted Bride Quarterly, Rattle, Sentence, West Wind, and Brain, Child. Randall writes regularly for Verbatim: The Language Quarterly about topics such as language in the Harry Potter series, rhyming reduplicative compounds, and the slang of Battlestar Galactica. She spent her childhood in and around Rochester, New York and now lives in Colorado Springs with her husband and two children.

Review:

"['The Consultant' is] the best science poem you'll read this month. Poet Jessy Randall has a history of filling us with happiness by writing dreamy, occasionally silly, poems that touch on science and science fictional topics...." - Annalee Newitz, io9 (io9.com/jessy-randall/)

“Were I a doctor, I’d prescribe Jessy Randall. Specifically, a poem-a-day, although I know the poem will not stay put in its prescription. It’ll gurgle, thinking about growing fur. It’ll unvelcro itself, step out of itself and morph into many brilliances, into many heavens in grains of sand. No, it’ll morph into a thousand, glowing (hugely-glowing) melon spoons. Thank you Jessy Randall.”—Kate Northrop



“Jessy Randall’s poems might be described as sassy—they’re bold & confident & they always seem to get the last word, casually dropping a bomb on the carefully orchestrated scene. In short, they’re smart; they know exactly when to hold back & when to release, when to demure & when to devastate.”—Nate Pritts



“[Randall’s] poems are beyond predicting—some touching, some hilarious—full of fresh insights and some nice wildnesses.”—X.J. Kennedy



Randall’s poems waste no words: they are often short but pack a powerful punch. Her language is clean and precise, which allows her to sneak-attack the reader with profound images. Randall’s poems have been appearing in various literary journals for some time, and this collection solidifies her reputation as a talent to watch.
