Kristen Tracy, “HALF_HAZARD” w/ Thomas Sadoski

Posted in skylight books, book stores, books, poetry by skylightbooks on November 22nd, 2018

Half-Hazard is a book of near misses, would-be tragedies, and luck. As Kristen Tracy writes in the title poem, “Dangers here. Perils there. It’ll go how it goes.” The collection follows Tracy’s wide curiosity, from her growing up in a small Mormon farming community to her exodus out into the forbidden world, where she finds snakes, car accidents, adulterers, meteors, and death-marked mice. These wry, observant narratives are accompanied by a ringing lyricism and Tracy’s own knack at noticing what’s so funny about trouble and her natural impulse to want to put all the broken things back together. Full of wrong turns, false loves, quashed beliefs, and a menagerie of animals, Half-Hazard introduces a vibrant new voice in American poetry. One of reslience, faith and joy. 

Tracy is in conversation with Thomas Sadoski, an actor who has acted in a variety of television, film, Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, including Life in Pieces, The Newsroom, and The Slap.
