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.
