Hanging Loose Press
The One and Only Human Galaxy is a collection of related poems which, on the surface, seem only to be about the life of the notorious magician Harry Houdini and the tumultuous times in which he lived. Underneath, Liz addresses the themes of a life in the theater, our own wishes and needs to escape, and especially the challenge of escaping death. This is a poetry book about magic, mystery and the wish to control what ultimately cannot be conquered. Liz has been published in magazines all over the country for the past several years, but this is her first full book of poems.
