Anita SkeenFirst there was Wonderland, then Middle Earth, not long ago Hogwarts, and now Arlington Court. Colleen Anderson can imagine worlds we want to visit with the best of them, and in her tale of Toothbucket, Inchbald, and Cocobean the cat, we meet friends we want to keep for the rest of our lives. With the language of the poet and the narrative prowess of the storyteller, Anderson shows us that even in the most mundane places there is mystery; that the safest spaces can contain loss, but ultimately joy; and that we often forget to search for beauty where it is most profound–in ourselves.
—Anita Skeen (Director, the RCAH Center for Poetry at Michigan State University and author of Never the Whole Story)
