About the Book

Imagine a city that breaks you as it makes you. A town whose screeching premise you understand but cannot stomach. A mecca that has brought you from humility, hunger, and white coats prescribing pink pills behind locked and guarded doors to every dream you have ever wanted in nine short years. I give you Los Angeles and Eros of Angels. This 350-page collection of poetry and prose touches on philosophy, theology, metaphysics, science, and God. It attempts to answer the question, why are we here? In metaphor, syntax and syllable without hiding behind clichés, corny quandaries, or curious canons. This tome is a breakthrough for Luza, who writes in a more down-to-earth, relaxed, and modest style than in 2014’s New York Nadir, for example. Eros of Angels then is the collection of a lifetime so far for a naturally gifted poet who has learned by overcoming hurdle after hurdle that now is the key to then.
