Amy Lawless is the guest. Her latest poetry collection, My Dead, is available now from Octopus Books.

Janae Green says

"Lawless writes poetry that itches; you have to bury your fingernails into your skin and bleed a little to remind yourself not to scratch it."

And Interview magazine says

"My Dead delves into the process of mourning loved ones with Lawless' calm, characteristically non-melodramatic poise. She cites videos of elephant mourning rituals seen on the Internet as a main source of inspiration. While humor might have been used to subvert heavier topics in the past, she chooses control and intimate dissection this time around."

Monologue topics: unlived lives, mediocrity, fate, bifurcation, Joan Rivers.
