Turning the Silver Wheel

ByKatherine MacDowell

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"Turning the Silver Wheel" is a collection of poetic-prose styled in Katie’s miniature narrative, where each poem’s emotional intensity and movement runs counter to the seeming structure and solidity of the paragraph that contains them. Meant to be read aloud in a kind of rapid, Slam poetic style, words jump off the page confronting the reader with experiences of loss, battery, longing, and despair. In keeping with all her work, Katie infuses herself, her vulnerabilities, her love, and her shame within the tightly packed paragraphs that make up this volume, as if to somehow contain her own sense of “bigness” or as she describes in her popular blog, Chasing Zebras: Living with an Undiagnosed Disease, her “too-much-muchness.”
