Angela Patten recently published In Praise of Usefulness with Wind Ridge Books, which describes this book of poetry as “an unflinching look at the challenges involved in relinquishing the sweet assurances of her childhood for the harsher realities of a responsible adult life.” A prose memoir, High Tea at a Low Table: Stories from an Irish Childhood, was published by Wind Ridge Books in 2013. Her work has appeared in literary journals such as Nimrod International Journal, Poetry Ireland, Calyx Journal, The Literary Review, Prairie Schooner, and Michigan Quarterly Review.
