See You In The Morning
Reading and Signing with Mairead Case and Special Guest Sara Jaffe
See You In the Morning is a book about three seventeen-year-olds, Rosie, John, and the book's unnamed narrator, who take care of each other one summer in a small Midwestern town. Rosie is a mystic romantic whose dad earned so much money writing screenplays that she doesn't need an after-school job. John, Rosie's ex, works at the roller rink in a rabbit costume and takes care of his mom when she's tired after her days spent cutting hair. The narrator works at a bookstore and sometimes focuses so hard on their reading that they see polka dots take over the room. John is the narrator's best and oldest friend, so now the two of them must be in love, right? Told in paragraph-shaped poems, and in the narrator's angry, tender, colorful voice, See You In the Morning asks, what is love and how does it work?
