Poetry. Winner of the 2008 Green Rose Prize in Poetry. "In a time when there's little to laugh about, Patty Seyburn's HILARITY is an epic punch line: sparkling and smart. I rely on her 'sort of music eliding joy and pain'--and the echoes in the great church of disbelief to keep us all sane and savvy. Read HILARITY and weep, and laugh. And get better because of it"--Carol Muske-Dukes.
