Spring 2017 Author, James Cagney, Publishes Book


James Cagney’s first poetry collection, BLACK STEEL MAGNOLIAS IN THE HOUR OF CHAOS THEORY, may now be pre-ordered from Nomadic Press.

“Toggling between loss, therapy, the pastoral, illness, the humorously personable, and the darkly familial—at every turn this book surprises, aches, and delights.”  -Sam Sax, Author of “Bury It”, 2017 James Laughlin Award winner.

According to Cagney: “You well know, I’ve been living these poems more than writing them. After all these years, to finally share them with you is both exciting and unnerving.
Plus: Consider yourself invited to the release party. Perhaps the only party I will ever go to and not be the first person to leave. But no pressure– its next weekend.”

Nomadic Press is hosting a release party on Saturday, October 13th at their Oakland office, 2301 Telegraph Ave. Oakland, CA, 7-9 pm.
