JEFF KIRBY She’s Having a Doris Day

ISBN 978 0 9959300 0 1
Cover: Drew Shannon


Where was she?

Each day she wakens / wonders what day is / this? what, if anything, she / has to do, or even if / she has to

In She’s Having a Doris Day, we find ourselves lost in pinkness, genderqueerness, whiteness, madness, sadness, gladness, and the beauty that keeps us here. From an entire morning finding her coffee, waking to the news of today’s massacre, to still having to deal with men. This is classic Kirby.
