C.M.

Meteor has been garnering blurbs and reviews, among them, from Foreword Magazine, which calls Meteor “funny and thoughtful” and from poet Grace Cavalieri who hosts “The Poet and the Poem from the Library of Congress,” who says of Meteor, “I believe this is Mayo’s best work—perfect words without artifice; characters and situations made permanent; a triumph of language as a natural art. She brings flowers to the living.” Mayo also recently gave an interview about Meteor to Leslie Pietryzk for her popular TBR blog at this link: http://www.workinprogressinprogress.com/2019/01/tbr-meteor-by-cm-mayo.html
