Water's Edge Press anounces the publication of The Velocity of Love, Kathryn Gahl's poetic memoir about wonder, loss, and longing. Gahl's magic in this collection lies in transforming unimaginable grief into everlasting grace, says editor Dawn Hogue.
Available for pre-order now (at Water's Edge Press) with late summer delivery.
Kathryn Gahl's words are breathtaking in their depth and clarity of what it may be like to fall in love with an angel. Before there was psychotherapy, there was poetry. -Brooke Laufer, Psy. D.
A rollercoaster read--the slow rise with a gorgeous view, the foreboding pause at the top, and then the unbearable plummet. A genuine wow.
-Cathryn Cofell, auhor of Stick Figure With Skirt
The Velocity of Love is a compelling and heart-rending collection of tiny stories in the shape of poems. -Peter Gilbert, Director, Seeley G. Mudd Library, Lawrence University
"Thirteen lines evoke a thirteen-year-old girl struggling with cultural imperatives." --Robin Becker
