Description

From tantalizing spins on fairy tales to perilous questions of gender and identity, misled never takes words at face value. Shifts in syntax and self mirror shifts in health and sexuality while humor, angst and eroticism become the backdrop in a passion play on words.

  • A girl's first crush on a boy transforms into passionate lesbian dreams and encounters.
  • An incomplete memory of a cliché ricochets off the familiar.
  • A writer's contemplation of rewriting leads to a list of things you can rewrite . . .
    "You can rewrite the bus schedule / but you might just confuse yourself."

Through it all, misled dances with equivocation and delights in the enchanting ways in which life and language mislead us all.
