Katherine Fishburn

Katherine Fishburn received a Ph.D. from Michigan State University. She is a retired MSU professor of English who has now devoted her life to creating message-oriented art. The Dead Are So Disappointing is her first collection of poetry.

"Katherine Fishburn's [The Dead Are So Disappointing] is truly moving. As she probes 'the grief of time,' she rehearses the complexities of life in families, with families and without them, easily taking us with her into the private tangles of contemporary relationships." -Linda Wagner, Martin Hanes Professor of English, UNC, Chapel Hill
