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.
