Lang Leav is a poet and internationally exhibiting artist. Awarded a coveted Churchill Fellowship, her work expresses the intricacies of love and loss.

Beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully conceived, Love and Misadventure will take you on a rollercoaster ride through an ill-fated love affair- from the initial butterflies to the soaring heights- through to the devastating plunge. Lang Leav has an unnerving ability to see inside the hearts and minds of her readers. Her talent for translating complex emotions with astonishing simplicity has won her a cult following of devoted fans from all over the world.

I think this is going to be the year of poetry for me, since I’ve been getting more into it lately. What a great one to start the year off with too. Lang Leav manages to weave together the sorrow, blinding happiness, and overwhelming feelings that come with love in a beautiful set of poems and illustrations. I was enthralled with the book from start to finish and literally did not put it down until I had finished reading the entire thing.

I think Leav has such a way with connecting to readers on a deeply personal level about feelings they have either had, or are currently having, which makes her writing so flawless. It’s almost as if there’s this angelic little voice in your head whispering the poems to you while you reflect on your own love and loss (or maybe not, that was just my own experience).

I can’t wait to read more of her work (specifically Lullabies, since I’ve heard such wonderful things). An amazing piece of work overall!
