Too Big to Fail
Capitalism’s absurd logic and inevitable deadly conclusions dictate the tone and voice of Georgia Faust’s ambitious, cerebral, and eerie debut. Tracing economic, architectural, and ecological disasters through the streets of New York City, language itself requires new forms and formulations as it attempts to relay the damage. Teeming with urban imagery and uncanny leaps of thought, this poetry collection is a one-of-a-kind exploration of how it feels to be alive in America in the 21st century. Personal experience is subject to market and atmospheric fluctuations.
Georgia Luna Smith Faust was born, raised, and currently lives in lower Manhattan where she presides over poetry and corporate bankruptcy administration. She is the author of the chapbook Too Faust Too Furious (Resolving Host, 2016) and the collaborative artist book, Pests of Public Importance (Purgatory Pie Press, 2016). She holds a BA in Literature and American Studies from Macalester College and an MFA in poetry from Brooklyn College.
