“Carrie Magness Radna wears her words as a protest on her poetic sleeve. Her stories mesmerize, address present day anger. America is under siege, and the world is in crisis mode. Wars never cease, the seas are rising, the polar caps are melting, et al. Our planet is in danger of self-destructing. In Hurricanes Never Apologize, Ms. Radna asks us not to apologize, but to cherish whom we love and motivate ourselves to save the world and ourselves from extinction.”
–Patricia Carragon, Curator, Editor-in-Chief of Brownstone Poets, Brooklyn, NY, author of Meowku and The Cupcake Chronicles
“Carrie Magness Radna is an accomplished, richly talented poet and vocalist whose poetry personifies nature, brings the cosmic down to earth, and demonstrates how our disintegrations oddly fits a divine purpose. She dwells on how love fits within our daily pathos–and because Eastern mystical philosophy warns against desire, she notes how the word pathos has a root that means passion, so that, within her work we see admonishments against desiring too fervently. Yet, her words are painfully redolent with writhing humanity, chaotic in gut-clenched pain. Feminist pride glows through in “Women’s Names Sensual Series” poems laced throughout her book. This poet will yearn for the sleep that knits the raveled sleeve of care; but she is no slacker, stays wide awake, and launches fervent jeremiads against the Anti-Everything that infests our White House. Reading her is a flammable experience.”
–Arthur Gatti, author of Songs of Mute Eagles and winner of The Dwight Durling Award (CUNY-wide writing contest)
