The Coriolis Effect (Bright Hill Press, 2007) is a chapbook of poems.
“These poems are smart, well-made, and humane. In its wise enterprise, whether the poems are set in Latin America or the rural South, this collection seems much bigger than a chapbook. Michael Dowdy is the real deal.” -John Balaban, author of Locusts at the Edge of Summer: New and Selected Poems
“From the Amazon Basin to Central Park, these highly textured poems traverse the earth in a welcome combination of beauty and craft. The voice here is infused with an insight and wisdom which pulls the reader in. This is a very rich collection.” -Marcia Douglas, author of Electricity Comes to Cocoa Bottom
