Love Songs from the End of the World by Katherine Riegel

Katherine Riegel’s new collection of poetry, Love Songs from the End of the World, is now available for purchase. Maggie Smith, author of Good Bones, has called it “precisely the book I needed at this moment” and described it as, “both fantastical and grounded in nature, deeply hopeful and stark in its appraisal of a dying world.”

Included in the collection is Riegel’s poem “Dear Future,” which was featured in the Summer 2018 issue.

She is the author of Letters to Colin Firth, winner of the 2015 Sundress Publications chapbook award, and two previous full-length collections of poetry: What the Mouth Was Made For (FutureCycle, 2013), and Castaway (FutureCycle, 2010).
