Come celebrate the Orlando release of Assistant Professor of English Chrissy Kolaya’s newest book Other Possible Lives with a special launch party and reading at Park Avenue CDs.
About the book:
Like the “House Sitters” in the opening cycle, who imagine the life they might have lived in a wealthy client’s home, “a dream life, borrowed,” these poems allow us to slip into lives that might have been ours, for better or worse.
"Psychologically sparkling and suspenseful."
--Matt Hart, author of Everything Breaking/For Good and The Obliterations
“All the possible lives and all possible endings shapeshift on the page, and what binds both these lives and this book is a tenderness almost too true to bear. This is gorgeous and glowing work.”
--Kerri Webster, author of The Trailhead, Grand & Arsenal, and We Do Not Eat Our Hearts Alone
“These poems offer up glimpses of alternate endings, of the freezing and thawing of love, leaving us to wander a world full of possibilities, where ‘everything was about to happen.’”
--Vandana Khanna author of The Goddess Monologues, Afternoon Masala, and Train to Agra
