A book-length narrative poem, this sassy, confessional, intoxicating, and heartbreaking work charts the ups and downs of a torrid love affair. From illusions of permanence and ownership to the pain of estrangement, Liar masterfully explores feelings familiar to anyone who has ever loved and lost. Crosbie also goes beyond this territory, examining the lover’s own complicity in her joy and suffering. Liar is a grotesque, beautiful meditation on the nature of love.
