Poetry. "In THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING Josie Kearns's poems take flight on insect wings, ponder geckos eating fireflies, finite parts of quantum, the Hubble Telescope, a parallel universe where her mother retires to Belgium, and the mysteries of Dark Matter. More surprises are in store for the reader as Kearns meditates on Mirasaki Shikibu, Japanese woman author of The Tale of Genji. Termite Love and a Babylonian god named Sin do not escape the poet's scrupulous attention. This is an exhilarating collection of sharp-edged poems that linger in memory. Brava"--Colette Inez.
