Winner of the 2013 Dream Horse Press Chapbook Prize
In this award-winning chapbook of “whip smart and darkly funny” poems, Smith explores the idea of disaster via current events and popular culture.
“In Maggie Smith’s Disasterology the poems lie down and make angels in the fallout as “a tide of fire drags everything away.” Whip smart and darkly funny, Smith chronicles how disaster proves itself time after time, film after film, yet another doom after doomsday. But everything is not one red phone ringing away from ruin. There is a future still waiting to be said, a hope that the pear trees will outlast us, bright, unending, maybe even sweet.”
