The new poetry collection by Catie Rosemurgy, author ofMy Favorite Apocalypse Catie Rosemurgy's second collection,The Stranger Manual, is a wild rush across the American grain. The poems follow an unlikely character named Miss Peach, an unpredictable, cartoonish shapeshifter, who emerges onto the page dragging the myth of the individual, various gender scripts, and the grand tradition of the poetic persona along with her. She becomes an outsider, a hero, an intruder, a rock star. The town around her, Gold River, is also always in fluxpart center and part mirage. The book celebrates the fractious nature of self and society in poems that are fabulist, speculative, and alluring.The Stranger Manualis a raucous, seductive work by one of America's best new voices in poetry.
