Sorry You Are Not An Instant Winner
Doritt's newest book, Sorry You Are Not An Instant Winner, is about life's pratfalls, the time when the joke was on us. Inspired by a message inside a candy wrapper, the book explores the bumps and bruises and the losing lottery tickets of life. It is published by Kattywompus Press and can be purchased here.
"What powers the work of Carroll is bold truth, intellectual firepower, and emotional experiences that raise good dust — after the settling, nothing is the same. She’s able to articulate what affection should be and what it is not and she gets it right. High energy poems come from good narrative structure but it’s the tale told that makes for change in the reader. The marvelous quality of this warrior writer is that she takes responsibility for every consequence in every line. The meanings discerned here are of such natural strength we ourselves know more how to speak. This book inspires confidence in our art. It’s pedal to the metal writing I won’t forget."
