Start your new KFB SELECTS Subscription with the latest from the author of the Griffin Poetry Prize Award-winning collection Infinite Citizen of the Shaking Tent.
“In Letters in a Bruised Cosmos, Liz Howard makes sentences with the elegance and mystery of a sculptor. Howard’s aesthetic mode is a beautiful synthesis of feminist, anti-colonial, and post-structural traditions of critique and re-imagination that is singularly hers. I read each poem with the faith that I would land somewhere I couldn’t have known existed until I opened this book. That’s the mark of poetic genius. I loved this book with my whole body.” —Billy-Ray Belcourt, author of A History of My Brief Body
Liz Howard’s cosmos is yes a difficult ongoingness, yet one that gifts bright with language. She creates poetry I can inhabit…Reading these poems, we are as rare and beautiful as Howard is, extending them to us.” —Erín Moure, author of The Elements
“Liz Howard’s Letters in a Bruised Cosmos stands as yet another masterpiece of orality and temporality in the blossoming oeuvre that is her poetic arena…she is a divining starwalker of a poet.” —Joshua Whitehead, author of Jonny Appleseed
