 About the Book 

Poetry. Like her great forebear Bertolt Brecht, Elizabeth Swados is a consummate theater artist who is a poet at the core. With her composers ear, directors intuition, and startling linguistic economy, she reinvents the theater poem for our time,MorePoetry. Like her great forebear Bertolt Brecht, Elizabeth Swados is a consummate theater artist who is a poet at the core. With her composers ear, directors intuition, and startling linguistic economy, she reinvents the theater poem for our time, conjuring a lost world and, at its center, a quicksilver Houdini escape artist, Jew, son, lover, celebrity, metaphysician, visionary. Let us welcome Swados the poet! THE ONE AND ONLY HUMAN GALAXY is a triumphant debut--Honor Moore. Elizabeth Swados has published fiction, nonfiction, and childrens books and received the Ken Award, as well as a New York Public Library Award for her book My Depression. Other awards include five Tony nominations, three Obie Awards, Helen Hayes Award and MANY others. This is her first collection of poetry.
