I am very very excited that My Posey Taste Like: The Paradise Lost Edition is out and available for sale from Bottlecap Press. This is essentially a brand new book, even though an earlier version came out two years ago. I've reworked and remastered the original poems and I wrote a slew of new ones after visiting the East coast this summer. I really hope you like the book. It is a completed thought now.
My Posey Taste Like: The Paradise Lost Edition by Alexandra Naughton is available for pre-order now from Bottlecap Press.
The Paradise Lost Edition is the new, greatly expanded full-length edition of Alexandra Naughton's 2015 Bottlecap chapbook, My Posey Taste Like. It is a concept album inspired by Lana Del Rey. Surreal landscapes and insincerity masked as sincerity and vice versa and limbo is always a place on earth with you with you with you.Read More

"In My Posey Taste Like: The Paradise Lost Edition, Naughton is telling us she's quite done playing performance poetry games (if we hadn't figured that out earlier.) This is a harrowing examination of obsession as fetish, commodity and tragedy on every level of all our lives. I ain't gonna lie...this is scary and creepy work, but it's head on the nail and it knows exactly what Paradise looks like." - Paul Corman Roberts
“...dreamlike, sensual & unsettling, in a way that sticks with you and gets stuck in your head like a pop song.” - Leza Cantoral
