Description

Pulling from raw themes of grief and death, regret and discomfort, sadness and failure, Worth wears these poems down to their bones. Straddling dreamy, ethereal images and brutal honesty, The Truth is Told Better This Way unravels its secrets one line at a time. The result is oracular and surreal, as each piece could be read as a magic spell that mesmerizes as much as a poem that tantalizes the senses.

Praise for The Truth is Better Told This Way:

"Told with a wink and a sly smile, Worth's deliciously dark and defiant poetry crawls under one's skin and stays there. The characters in The Truth is Told Better This Way dance barefoot on dirty club floors, pee with the door open and whisper their hard-won truth into subway payphones. Like an unforgotten lover whom you just can't shake, the poems in this collection will keep you up at night." --Heather Babcock, author of Of Being Underground and Moving Backwards

"Liz Worth has never been darker. In this new collection she transforms her craft of confessional writing into a filthy and flourishing fantasia; a witch's brew of the most poetic magicks." --dalton derkson
