Comb the Sky with Satellites, It’s Still a Wilderness ~ limited edition
Cathoel’s first collection, Going for the Eggs in the Middle of the Night, sold 1300 copies and drew reviewer comparisons with Julian of Norwich and St Teresa of Avila. Comb the Sky with Satellites, It’s Still a Wilderness presents 47 new poems and 23 photographs, published September 2014.
Robert Adamson: “I suggest you dive into this remarkable book of digital images and handcrafted words and let its strong tide wash over your brain. Cathoel Jorss is a poet of telling observation whose images burn in the dark. Her work is alive with the spirit of a generous woman whose poetry speaks of abundance. There is a vivid awareness of the world’s situation here, so we know the hope Jorss rakes up in these poems is hard won, conjured from her life-giving imagination. This book is a vast and a brilliant plea that we stay alive to the possibilities of Jorss’s world, where the living atmosphere is sweet to breathe, where the light shines for reading.”
James Sutherland-Smith, reviewing in Bow-Wow Shop: “There isn’t a dud poem in this collection.”
Melissa Lucashenko: “A writer to change your thinking, your writing and your dreams.”
Sandy McCutcheon: “Cathoel Jorss is poetry.”
Kerry Leves, reviewing in Overland: “The total impression is of a first-rate artist at work.”
