Description

"A linked sequential lyric balancing aphoristic ingenuity, deadpan irreverence, and the deep interior exploration of the soul." --sam sax
In this chronicle of mourning and survival, Ali Liebegott wallows in loneliness and over-assigns meaning to everyday circumstance, clinging to an aging dog and obsessing over dead birds. But these unpretentious vignettes are laced with compassion, as she learns to balance the sting of death with the tender strangeness of life.
Ali Liebegott is the author of three books, and the recipient of two Lambda Literary Awards and a Ferro-Grumley Award. She currently lives in Los Angeles and writes for Transparent.
