Feline and Nothingness22532-300x267

This, the 29th issue of Clockwise Cat, is laden with venomous invective and enriching reviews! Our treasured scribes searingly satirize e-books, contemporary poetry, political approaches to immigration and abortion, the educated class, environmentalists (or, rather, enemies to environmentalists), and holiday bigotry. Satirical savvy gives way to more pointed polemics such as that written by Edwin Young about the malevolent 1%. Elsewhere, there are not one but THREE tirades about the egregious treatment of public school teachers, a punishing view into the follies and fallacies of a misogynist George Will, a scathing perspective on overpopulation, and an erudite meditation on poetics. David McLean heads up the review section with his usual prolific stream of appraisals of recently released small press chapbooks and tomes. We also feature film reviews, music reviews, and book reviews. Enjoy these satirical and review offerings at your own peril, for they might just induce a dangerous expansion of your own puny mind!
