Review of My Book at After the Pause

Another rave review! After the Pause says of my debut poetry collection, Give the Bard a Tetanus Shot:

“V.C. McCabe is a modern, necessary Appalachian voice in poetry. Not wanting flyover country to be forgotten, willing to show her zone of conflicted earth in all its guts and glory. In Give the Bard a Tetanus Shot, she displays Appalachia to be yet another home for complicated, maddening, beautiful humanity…

…McCabe brings a welcome voice to rural, environmental poetry. Juxtaposing beauty with the slander humans sometimes visit against the land, McCabe is able to ultimately bring out the pathos and humanity of a land toward whom disrespect ought to lessen in light of poetic credence.”
