Phineas William Walsh is on a mission. He’s going to save the world one endangered species at a time – and he’s depending on the Green Channel to help him do it. That is until things go terribly, horribly wrong… as they only can in the life of a fourth grader.

The Coast praises Joy is So Exhausting

By Sean Flinn
The Coast
September 24 2009

This collection's title, a nod to Marian Engel's Bear, is both a playful observation and hilarious declaration. Holbrook provides a great reminder that poetry is supposed to be fun and fun to read---a professor of literature and creative writing at University of Windsor, she sends up her occupation in "Textbook Case: Questions to Consider Regarding Our Last Phone Call." A simple series of questions posed with a mix of professorial authority and regret over a conversation with a partner gone wrong, it's like an assignment to herself.
