Kathleen McGookey’s “latest collection, Instructions for My Imposter, is an irresistible read: sixty-three resonant and lovingly polished works that sing their stories with only a few well-chosen details and images. The prose poem is an overnight bag which the writer must pack carefully, given there’s room only for essentials. Most of McGookey’s prose poems run fewer than two hundred words.” (Clare MacQueen) “In these stunning prose poems–full of family and beautiful birds, loss and quiet observation, color and so much light–McGookey has written lines that will blind you with a luminescence that springs from precision and tender attention to detail. Her explorations of daily life are by turns yearning, metaphorical, and grounded in the holy ordinary.” (Anne-Marie Oomen)
