Your Attraction to Sharp Machines

Your Attraction to Sharp Machines – A Poetry Collection by Matthew Mahaney

Your Attraction to Sharp Machines is perhaps best described as a novella written in verse. Mahaney develops complex characters through each of the novella’s three distinct sections, exploring their relationships and psyches through form and song-like imagery. The book itself demands attention and engagement, and readers soon will find themselves pulled into Elizabeth’s life in unexpected ways.
