“[Mason] bravely explores the interior life of the mind and imagination . . . the poems ravel, unravel as hauntingly as Kodaly or Bartok.”—Sarah Maclay
Edgy and lyrical expressions of the human heart set in a landscape of palms and avocados, of ocean and forest, of Hollywood billboards and noir passion, Holaday Mason’s poetry is haunted and nocturnal, with broken dreaming and falling blossoms, an erotic and dangerous and beautiful place, a world dark and graceful. She writes with extravagant passion and unflinching nerve.
Holaday Mason is a clinical psychologist living in Venice, California, and is active in the literary scene there.
