About Katie Willingham

I am a recently graduated English major and poet from Macalester College in Saint Paul, MN. I am an avid reader and have a lot to say about what I read.

    feeling your Oates – well cast, Katie:
    I write, as you note on American Appetites,
    with bloats
    of running, punctuating, preying and praying to be elevated,
    spiraling up,
    not
    down,
    out of control
    or goal:
    Cambodia,
    Shangrila,
    America,
    Biblia (brave little books) —
    look:
    a brave little lamb
    or the great I Am
    or a passing
    Tom

    Fancy cheese!

    It’s interesting to me that this was published in the end of the eighties beginning nineties. It seems like the theme is something that would have come out of a 1950s era, or our current time, which I think tends towards more disillusionment. Is there that sense in the book?
