unusual light source, a chapbook

Unusual Light Source is the first chapbook length work by Caroline O’Connor Thomas, published by White Stag Publishing.


See what the kind & generous readers are saying:

“…these are the knockout poems of a new surrealist, continually rediscovering the old lesson that her world is equally as interesting as her imagination, and language itself. In love and despair and hope this poet careens from experience to experience …”
- Matthew Zapruder, Author of Why Poetry 

Unusual Light Source… gives the reader what might otherwise seem ineffable, a preservation of innocence, a speaker whose vulnerability bursts with glee, humor and terror…”
- Sara Mumolo, Author of Day Counter and Mortar

“…bewitching, hexavalent poems roam city streets, grocery stores, and Mesa, Arizona, remembering to be curious and suspicious of light, love, wide open spaces, to wear ‘newly mad animal,’ to be bewildered.”
- Mary Cisper, Author of Dark Tussock Moth
