IFOA and Nightwood Editions invite you to the release of Cruise Missile Liberals by Spencer Gordon as part of the Toronto Lit Up book launch series.

“Spencer Gordon’s Cruise Missile Liberalsis, as its title suggests, a very funny, often despairing book. Jammed with on-point pop and breathtaking turns of phrase, this collection of poems is genuinely compelling: it is hard to stop reading, so sweetly twisted is Gordon’s world.”—Lynn Crosbie, Author of Where Did You Sleep Last NightLife Is About Losing Everything, and Liar
