Early Praise

Can Buddhists Wear Mascara

(and Other Things I've Googled)

Shutta Crum

author of When You Get Here

This is not a book you are holding in your hand. It is a window into the sometimes crazy, sometimes sweet, sometimes despairing world we live in. So, climb in...and take a deep gulp of the poems that are offered. You'll come away satisfied. 

Tara D.

Goodreads Reviewer

This is such a brilliant and moving collection of poems. Anderson has the rare gift of mindful self-awareness...Her capacity to beautifully "undress" messy and painful dualities invites readers to consider their own buried contradictions, sorrow, and longing. Her book also feels necessary right now in our polarized country -- offering tender tools for disarmament and dialogue. 

Abigail M. Prout

Author of Walk Deep

Jenny Anderson is a contemporary jester. Few poets can simultaneously make you laugh and bleed. Each poem is a mini story exploring the relatable pulls of addictions and thoughtfulness. This book is a compassionate (and thoroughly entertaining) celebration of the irony of being.  Prepare to be delightfully called out!

Zoe Fishman

Author of The Fun Widow's Book Tour and 5 other novels

Jenny bravely tackles coming of age in her forties - her triumphs, losses, growth and regression as she faces the sobering reality of her own mortality with gratitude and a familiar degree of fear. I saw myself in her poetry and liked my reflection - warts and all. You will too.
