I Would Leave Me If I Could: A Collection of Poetry (Hardback)Halsey (author)
One of the most creative and distinctive singer-songwriters of her generation, Halsey crafts razor-sharp, emotionally involving poetry centred around family, sexuality and mental illness.
In this debut collection, Halsey bares her soul. Bringing the same artistry found in her lyrics, Halsey's poems delve into the highs and lows of doomed relationships, family ties, sexuality, and mental illness. More hand grenades than confessions, these autobiographical poems explore and dismantle conventional notions of what it means to be a feminist in search of power.
Masterful as it is raw, passionate, and profound, I Would Leave Me If I Could signals the arrival of an essential voice.
