Fiction. Amelia has the ability to levitate. During her wanderings through dream galleries, costumed performances, and future libraries she meets Clara (an elusive photographer), Sebastion (part human, part lion) and a chorus of cynics who exist only in partial bodies. "Part mystery and part Oz story, ACTS OF LEVITATION is a narrative of exquisite disappearances and re-appearances... As always, Laynie Browne's work is ephemeral, complex, and alluring"--Lisa Jarnot.


Laynie Browne was born and grew up in Los Angeles. She attended the University of California, Berkeley, and Brown University and was awarded The Gertrude Stein Award in Innovative Poetry three times.
