What People Are Saying
These bittersweet, lyrical, yet often eviscerating poems are ekphrastic explorations that examine life’s fragile connections with ruthless intent. Sparing no one, Luzajic strips the shiny façade from her subjects, exposing their humanness, and her own.” Alexis Rhone Fancher, author of The Dead Kid Poems, poetry editor, Cultural Weekly
"Astonishing, urgent, leaves nothing behind. Each brief narrative emboldens an emotional truth with language that is fierce, elegant, and unflinching; Luzajic's writing is nothing short of brilliant." Karen Schauber, editor, The Group of Seven Reimagined: Contemporary Stories Inspired by Historic Canadian Paintings
“Best writing I've read by a living writer since who knows when.” Darrell Epp, author of After Hours, Sinners Dance, Imaginary Maps
“"We only see what we want to see,’ writes Luzajic in ‘Anthropology.’ If that’s the case, praise the gods we have Luzajic to contemplate the things we miss, due to willful blindness, or despair. Luzajic's new book is full of original insights into what it means to be alive, and human. The characters you’ll encounter are so vivid, so honest, that the reader cannot help but feel they know the poet. This is when you know you are dealing with a master.” Jordan Trethewey, author of Spirits for Sale
"This book's more honest than you. It'll hold your hand and bring you places." Noah Wareness, author of Meatheads, Real is the Word They Use to Contain Us
"Luzajic, like Wonder Woman, is her own institution." -Paul Robinson, Blog Critics
"Lorette C. Luzajic's mixed media art is a superhuman effort to coalesce the imaginative world." Moray Mair
