The Loneliest Girl
SKU: 9780826363695

Who was more alone than Medusa? Raped in Athena's temple, transformed into a monster, and banished into a cave, Medusa may be the ultimate example of victim blaming. In The Loneliest Girl, Kate Gale creates a powerful alternative narrative for Medusa and for all women who have carried guilt and shame--for being a woman, for not being enough, for being a victim.

Echo Light

Poetry. "The poems in Kate Gale's ECHO LIGHT do what poems should do—they give wings to darkness, shadows and bruises. We find ourselves lost in cornfields and then saved in a desert, a city, unsuspected places. Gale crafts poems that are 'curiously powerful' and offer us 'salvation from boredom.' The stories, the speakers weave myths of intoxication and sensuality, reminding us of 'words you aren't saying.' They roam from earth and snow to sun, stars and sky. ECHO LIGHT 'has invented the world' of poetry that we yearn for—a world full of imagination, music and flight."—Lory Bedikian

Mating Season
SKU: 9781932195170

Kate Gale's work reverberates with a conscious passion. For her, language is a way of conveying the raw anguish that is underneath the surface of all living, the violence that occurs behind closed doors, the way human beings claw for survival. These poems hardly float on an ocean, they are down there in the ocean's depths where big fish wait for smaller ones and where life was born.
