The Mansion of Happiness

Alien abduction, reincarnation, earthquake, love, death, middle age, children, the end of the world—Jon Loomis’s new collection covers a lot of ground. From the quiet and contemplative lyric voice of “The Past” and “If I Come Back” to the wild, unrepentant personae of “Jon Loomis, Inc.” and “Shut Up and Eat Your Jellyfish,” these are poems as necessary as they are brave. The Mansion of Happiness is a love song to the teetering present, facing an ominous future with courage, candor, and mordant humor.
