Angel Bones has an introspective voice that maintains a bright understanding of the temporal.As we read, we are painfully aware the speaker is dying from cancer and death is imminent. The attempt to not only explain, but understand how to welcome and embrace death is a bittersweet calm. How can one leave willingly when there is so much left behind?

Ilyse Kusnetz (1966-2016), poet, essayist, and journalist, is the author of Small Hours, winner of the T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry, and The Gravity of Falling. She earned a PhD in contemporary feminist and postcolonial British literature form the University of Edinburgh. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Orion Magazine, Rattle, Guernica Daily, Islands Magazine, Kyoto Journal, and The Normal School, among others, as well as in anthologies including The Room and the World; The Bookof Scented Things; Devouring the Green: Fear of a Transhuman Planet; and Monstrous Verse: Angels, Demons, Vampires, Ghosts, and Fabulous Beasts. She also guest-edited Scottish poetry features for Poetry International and the Atlanta Review. She co-wrote "Vox Humana,” the poetic text to a composition which premiered with the Buffalo Symphony Orchestra. She is the lead voice and lyricist for the Interplanetary Acoustic Team, and their debut album 11 11 (Me, Smiling) was released in 2018. A professor at Valencia College, Ilyse lived with her husband, Brian Turner, in Orlando, Florida.

Previous Praise: “Kusnetz is a poet who sees the wide horizon of history with unusual clarity and she brings disparate moments of the past into conversation with each other—the affect is both enlightening and arresting.” —Poetry International
