About the Book

This second poetry collection by author Jodie Toohey explores, though poetry, the craziness of modern day life. It includes the prize-winning poem, “Out of the Blue.” Advanced praise for the book include:
Advanced Praise: “Poet, author Jodie Toohey exhibits her diverse and creative poetic voice in The Other Side of Crazy. Her poems elicit raw emotions and draw the reader to think about life from a different angle, from the other side of the proverbial box.” ~Trisha Georgiou, Quartered Enlightenment
Advanced Praise: “These poems are like rare, black pearls, simple, beautiful, darkly iridescent, and a little sinister. The Reader wears them in her heart and mind like a badge made of rare jewels that entitles her to a tour through The Other Side of Crazy with poet Toohey as the tour guide.” ~Ellen Tsagaris, Sappho, I should have listened
Advanced Praise: “In The Other Side of Crazy, Jodie Toohey explores the frailty of relationships and modern life from her own unique perspective. She guides the reader ‘Through the valley/Of vulnerability/…Of agony over/Straits/Of jackets and jars.’ Her poems beat with palpable emotion, fearless and honest, evoking a rich, multi-layered world.” ~Nancy Ann Schaefer, In Search of Lode
Advanced Praise: “The trick in The Other Side of Crazy seems to be that it’s a place we cannot access, or perhaps does not exist. These poems are filled with startling images, both strange and commonplace: blood-soaked quilts, burning watches, calendars, thunderstorms, dead skin, pharmaceutical commercials, a bike ride across the emotional terrain of modern life. These poems are littered with interruptions—both internal & external—that are always biting at the heels at this contemporary normalcy & domesticity, and in the end, rather than being resisted or fretted upon or allowed to hold modern life hostage, they are embraced & incorporated into the living and crazy love these poems so deftly reflect.” ~Ryan Collins
