The more I owe you -Michael Sledge launch a novel about the life and love of Elizabeth Bishop.

"The more I owe you creates an intimate portrait of the poet Elizabeth Bishop through accounts of her life in Brazil and her relationship with the Brazilian architect Lota de Macedo Soares. Using biographies on and poetry by Bishop to provide backdrop, the novel unveils the intense private world and literary mind of the poet, who lived in constant conflict with herself both as an author and a woman. The book also portrays Lota as seen through the poet’s eyes, a determined woman with a strong personality, who wrestled non-stop with her own inner demons"
