City of Redmond, WA appoints Jeannine Hall Gailey Poet Laureate:
- Amazing in-depth review in Southern Humanities Review, Winter 2012, #46.1
"Jeannine Hall Gailey weaves myth and folklore into poems illuminating the realities of modern life. Gailey is, quite simply, one of my favorite American poets; and She Returns to the Floating World is her best collection yet." —Terri Windling, writer, artist, and editor of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror series and The Armless Maiden
“Kin to the extraordinary pillow book of tenth-century Japanese court poet Sei Shōnagon, Jeannine Hall Galley has created her own collection of extraordinary myths, fables, and folktales for the twenty-first century.” —Sandra Alcosser, author of Except by Nature
“The poems in Gailey’s highly anticipated second collection mesmerize the reader with its glimmering revisitations of myth that explore love and desire via the most unexpected conduits: foxes, robots, and the kingdom of animé.” —Aimee Nezhukumatathil, author of Lucky Fish
"These poems fuse figures and narratives from Japanese myths and folklore, Shinto spirits, philosophy and popular culture to explore the nexus between the spiritual and the sensual…Amid musings on the darker corners of Japan's postwar legacy are flashes of the humor born of perseverance. Even Godzilla has a cameo." —Roland Kelts, author of Japanamerica
