"...Side streets splinter into longer curved roads and cul-de-sacs named after various trees and birds, especially the dove: Dove Springs Drive, Dove Drive, Dovemeadow, Dove­wood, Dovehill. Depending on the splinter one chooses to follow, the scenery might include children playing street baseball, or lining up at ice cream trucks playing "Pop Goes the Weasel" and Spanish polkas, families barbecuing on their lawns, cars on blocks taking up space beneath sprawling oaks, empty lots strewn with trash, graffiti – typically in red and black, the kind of aggressive scrawls that mean little or nothing to the uninitiated – and leaning wood fences painted multiple shades of white, beige, gray, and brown for each time the graffiti has been painted over..."

Music Review  September 21, 2001, by Raoul Hernandez
"...The YardbirdsUltimate! (Rhino) With 52 tracks running two and a half hours, Rhino's 2-CD Ultimate! lends ample credence to the supposition that the Yardbirds are the not-so-missing musical link between Sixties pop and Seventies rock. Like their early-Sixties British peers, the Kinks, Who, Beatles, and Stones, the London quintet, which took its name from Jack Kerouac's love of jazz titan Charlie "(Yard)Bird" Parker, were enamored with American R&B..."

DAILY Arts  March 31, 2015, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...One of my favorite scenes in Through the Looking Glass is when Alice and the fawn enter the forest where you forget your name and what you are, and—abstract categories out of the way—strike up a friendship. In my book Summer and Bird, I borrowed that idea for a section where the grief-stricken Summer enters a strange place of healing where she forgets for a while who and what she is...."

The Radiant Road
Author Katherine Catmull elegantly summons a fairy-tale timelessness for this YA story of teen anxieties, fairies, and creativity
Arts Review  January 21, 2016, by Rosalind Faires
"...With The Radiant Road, Katherine Catmull elegantly summons that same fairy-tale timelessness, that gentle déjà vu that maybe we heard this tale as a bedtime story once when we were very, very small even when we know we are reading it for the first time. The second novel by this award-winning Austin stage actor – the follow-up to her enchanting Summer and Bird – follows the motherless, displaced Clare, a girl on the precipice of her teenage years, as she travels to Ireland with her father to return to the house she was born in – inside of which grows a tree that her mother's family has had guardianship of for generations..."
