Kate Leadbeater's singular poetic voice has been dazzling and amusing audiences in the Toronto spoken-word scene since 2006. Sometimes quirky and funny, sometimes yearning and romantic, and always full of life, Kate writes the kind of poems that entertain you whether you're hearing them from a slam stage or reading them off a chapbook page.
From sex fantasies to childhood nostalgia, from Peter Mansbridge to a distant French lover, from a dialogue with the whole world to a conversation with a barfly - Kate covers an unusual blend of subjects. She does it in a style that's readable, often prosaic, yet also willing to have fun with language and imagery. Poems for Addiction, Sex and Sanity is a collection that manages to reflect a strong personal voice while staying aware of its audience.
