Poetry, paperback, 64 pages, from Maudlin House.
"Dissinger writes with a delicate balance of sadness and beauty that captures the complexities of life and love with humanity and tact. She instills in her audience these same overlapping layers of emotion, to heartrending effect. Sometimes Cool Things Are Terrible defies its own title by being very cool, but not at all terrible. It’s wonderful, really. Amanda Dissinger is a master of feeling."
-C.A. Mullins, author of Day Drunk Blues
