Time Crunch explores the terrain of family, physics, art, loss and the healing yet endangered beauty of our planet.
"The textured and lyrically lush narratives in Time Crunch-- deftly honed poems that titillate and resound long after their last lines--firmly establish Cathy Colman as a fierce and formidable voice destined to be a stalwart voice in the contemporary canon."--Patricia Smith, author of Incendiary Art
"Cathy Colman's third collection Time Crunch pulses with lyric ingenuity. Deeply felt, these poems are grounded in the mythological, the literary, the filmic, the embodied & the scientific. The breadth of this collection's wide enough to coax Janis Joplin, Samuel Beckett & Thelonius Monk into the same dance with exacting choreography. She writes 'Because I have been so many women, none of them able to sleep' and this polyphonic historical multiplicity beckons the reader in as we are drawn through this remarkable book."--sam sax, author of bury it
