On Writing #88 : Lillian Necakov

Writing is a Hyena
Lillian Necakov

chasing you down every single day of your life
it’s an albatross
a disease
a hero
a regret
a sorrow
a mistake
a yearning
an ache
a delight
a love
a brutality
an echo
a lie
a path
a curse
a life.

Lillian Necakov has been writing and publishing for over 30 years. She is the author of Sickbed of Dogs, Wolsak and Wynn, 1989, Polaroids, Coach House Books, 1997, Hat Trick, Exile Editions, 1998, The Bone Broker, Mansfield Press, 2007 and Hooligans, Mansfield Press 2011, The Lake Contains an Emergency Room, Apt. 9 Press, 2015.
