Switchback is pleased to reveal, live & in color, the cover for Kathleen Rooney’s Oneiromance (an epithalamion):

Winner of the 2007 Gatewood Prize, Kathleen Rooney’s Oneiromance (an epithalamion) explores the absurdity and divinity of the marriage ceremony through a dizzying dream sequence with playful verse that skillfully blends call and response with Shakespearean odes, romance and cynicism, storytelling and wordplay. Patty Seyburn proclaims: "These poems contain deep doubt and true sentiment, providing that pleasure-giving union of provocation and renewal." Rooney is a founding editor of Rose Metal Press and the author of Reading with Oprah: the Book Club That Changed America (University of Arkansas, 2005).
