Judy Garland is Not a Sunrise

by E.F. Schraeder

Judy Garland is Not a Sunrise is E.F. Schraeder's new collection of poems featuring themes of addiction and creativity, inspired in part by the life and music of Amy Winehouse.

“Lyrical and melancholy . . . An unsettling and compelling offering from an exceptional voice in horror poetry,” writes Lee Murray, USA Today Bestselling author and double Bram Stoker Award® winner. In Judy Garland is Not a Sunrise, Schraeder “discusses how fans oftentimes marry suffering to the creation of art, all while commenting on mental health, the body, and how the heart processes pain, overstimulation, and the need to constantly produce and survive. A must-read for poets and artists alike,” writes Bram Stoker Award® winner Stephanie M. Wyotovich. Cleveland poet Danne Borsenik writes, “E . F. Schraeder coaxes Amy Winehouse’s life from somber shadows into a powerful klieg spotlight, with insightful poems that are both dissection and homage.”

Set for release in February 2023, Judy Garland is Not a Sunrise is Schraeder’s third poetry chapbook. To read more advance praise, order a copy, or find  additional information about the collection visit the publisher, Finishing Line Press.
