Poetry. Elizabeth Robinson's new book investigates the uncanny doubleness inherent in each self, the hells unacknowledged in self-examination. Filled with mirrors, doppelgängers, puppets, and dreams, COUNTERPART brings the best of Robinson's thoughtful lyricism to deeply important questions every soul grapples with.
