Grammy Award-nominated, platinum-selling musician Halsey is heralded as one of the most compelling voices of her generation. In I Would Leave Me If I Could, she reveals never-before-seen poetry of longing, love, and the nuances of bipolar disorder. In this debut collection, Halsey bares her soul. Bringing the same artistry found in her lyrics, Halsey's poems delve into the highs and lows of doomed relationships, family ties, sexuality, and mental illness. More hand grenades than confessions, these autobiographical poems explore and dismantle conventional notions of what it means to be a feminist in search of power. Masterful as it is raw, passionate, and profound, I Would Leave Me If I Could signals the arrival of an essential voice. Book cover painting, American Woman, by the author. Halsey, born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and recipient of the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame's Hal David Starlight Award. She lives in Los Angeles, California.

Sue - Paper Plus Masterton - January 2021

Halsey is best known as a musician of alternative music and refers to herself as ‘anti-popstar, wishing to ‘connect with people in her music regardless’ …so poetry gives her another avenue that is complimentary to her ideals and lyric-writing skills. She’s determined not to be ‘pigeon-holed’ into ‘stardom’ and all that runs alongside the image. She’s thoughtful and serious about the issues that matter to her, supporting suicide awareness due to her own personal struggles. If you’re also a fan of Gabbie Hanna ‘Adultolescence’ and ‘Dandelion’ or Lili Reinhart ‘Swimming Lessons’ then this is one not to be missed.
