Columbus: Marsh Hawk Press Reading
Join Harper's Magazine and Book Culture on Columbus on Thursday, May 9th for a reading by Marsh Hawk Press authors Sandy McIntosh, Lesser Lights, and Mary Mackey, The Jaguars That Prowl Our Dreams.
About The Jaguars That Prowl Our Dreams
In The Jaguars That Prowl Our Dreams: New and Selected Poems 1974 to 2018, Mary Mackey writes of life, death, love, and passion with intensity and grace. Her poems are hugely imaginative and multi-layered. Part One contains forty-eight new poems including twenty-one set in Western Kentucky from 1742 to 1975; and twenty-six unified by an exploration of the tropical jungle outside and within us, plus a surreal and sometimes hallucinatory appreciation of the visionary power of fever. Part Two offers the reader seventy-eight poems drawn from Mackey's seven previous collections including SUGAR ZONE, winner of the 2012 Oakland PEN Josephine Miles Award for Literary Excellence.

G. Wodehouse, and others.
