Carol Lynne Knight will give a reading of "if I lose myself" on September 13, 2022.

Used almost as “stand-ins” in her own search for the parts of her life that lay flickering somewhere between sunlight and shadow, Knight has employed the witty trope of television and literary detectives whom she asks: ” If I disappear…” How will you find me?

Beginning many of the 47 poems in the collection with a kind of invitation: “If I am accused…”; “If my car was found abandoned…”; If you lose me in New York City…”; “If I get arrested…” Knight then provides “clues,” “traces” of her experiences as the ex-wife of a South Florida cop, her infidelities, and the emotional adventures of her own life, sometimes reckless and times in search of direction.
