Love & Vodka

Christina Strigas Love & Vodka is a poetry collection centred on connections, love, rejection and loneliness.

Christina Strigas

Love & Vodka is Christina Strigas' third poetry book. This book is written for all the hearts that shatter, that are transparent, that crack, rebuild and see truth. This is for the souls that connect through words. The poems in this book will make you breathless from their honesty. This poetry collection is full of poems that will make you contemplate the magic of connections, disconnections, rejection, love, drinking, pain, marriage, loneliness, honour and the perils of living so many lifetimes in one. Delve into poetry head first and read passages over again to connect. This book has a modern feel with an ancient way of writing. Inspired by Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath and modern poets such as Mary Oliver and Billy Collins to name a few, Christina Strigas uses stream of consciousness to devour themes and words and spurt them forth into a poem. A contemporary poetry book that will not disappoint you and that will restore your faith into the power of poetry again. (From Christina Strigas)
