On Mockingbird Hill is an account of the idealized lookout lifestyle made popular by Jack Karouac. It is also the story of a woman’s search for meaningful work. Kelly’s reflections look humorously on gender, and how sometimes, our lives mysteriously and briefly intersect with others, leaving an imprint and forcing us to look inward.
Mary Theresa Kelly completed a master’s degree in communication studies at the University of Calgary and works by contract, part-time, in health and gender research. Her work has appeared in diverse publications from Event to The Journal of Integral Theory & Practice to The Dance Current. On Mockingbird Hill, published by Caitlin Press, is her first book. She lives in Vernon, BC.
