If This Fumbled Kiss Ever Ends, I’m Going to Write Her a Poem
Every story and every poem I’ve published up to this point has elements of my own life in it. But none so many, all in one place, as this little book.
Here’s the back cover description:
This Fumbled Kiss is a collection of G.C. McRae’s sensually rich micro-poems. In it, he takes on topics like first dumb love, the existential rollercoaster of fatherhood and insights from funerals with equal enthusiasm. Known for his humorous picture books and timeless fairy tales, McRae here turns the focus on his own life, where he finds that its big ticket events are often eclipsed by its small intimate moments.
