ANGEL, Libby

Libby Angel is an Australian poet whose work has appeared in several journals.

The Trapeze Act is her first novel.

‘A book of whimsy and wit…It’s the pure imaginative feat of The Trapeze Act, and Angel’s joyous, clever use of language that makes it such a rollicking good read. I’m always excited when I hear a poet has made the leap to prose, because sometimes the result bends the rules of what we expect from a novel and creates something new. With The Trapeze Act, Angel has done just that.’ Adelaide Advertiser

‘An expertly layered, lyrical rumination on family and identity…Angel has a vivid imagination and poetic skill with language. Her prose is evocative, her strikingly original characters as bright and colourful as they are intense. The Trapeze Act is a compelling portrait of a highly dysfunctional but delightful family. I look forward to seeing more from this talented writer.’ Readings
