By Liz Howard
A wonderful debut e-book of poems from a daring new voice unafraid to have interaction with the exigencies of our modern world.

What Howard can accomplish with language moves us as electrical, one of those alchemy of belief and disaster, constancy and apocalypse. The waters of Northern Ontario defend nation are the poisonous foundation and a picture of power. a subject matter, a lady, a client, a polluter; an erotic strength, a burdened brilliance, a really beneficial type of urgency – all are loosely tethered jointly and made by some means to resonate with our personal devotions and fears; made “to be small and dreaming parallel / to rite and decay.” Liz Howard is what modern poetry wishes correct now.
