  • Following hot on the heels of Relit Award-nominated No Work Finished Here (BookThug, 2016), the poems collected in The Truth is Told Better This Way may be some of Liz Worth's most personal and confessional works yet.

    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

    “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

Liz Worth is the author of six books, including Treat Me Like Dirt: An Oral History of Punk in Toronto and Beyond, and No Work Finished Here: Rewriting Andy Warhol (BookThug, 2016; nominated for the ReLit Award in the poetry category). She was born and raised in Toronto, where she continues to reside.
