SPUNKY GRANDMAS…And Other Amusing Characters
Entertaining stories in sonnet form about comical human behavior
PRAISE FOR SPUNKY GRANDMAS ….AND OTHER AMUSING CHARACTERS
Finally! Poetry I can understand! With a bonus: It’s hilarious! And an added perk: It not only makes sassy sense, it’s actually intelligent! A whole bookful of sonnets? Fourteen lines of iambic pentameter, with rhymes. Duh? Who writes like this? Old guys—Petrarch, Dante, Shakespeare, Ken Mogren …..Emilio DeGrazia, author, poet and founder of Great River Review literary magazine
I am deeply impressed with the poetic consistency of the sonnet form. Several caused me to chuckle out loud. The illustrations are also a “hoot”…..Hal Cropp, Producing Artistic Director, Commonweal Theatre Company
Ken Mogren’s sense of humor feels like the first warm breeze after a long winter. His quirky world view, deft turn of phrase, and courageous (and hilarious} use of the sonnet art form makes “Spunky Grandmas….And Other Amusing Characters” a literary treasure……Patrick Marek, publisher Winona Post.
