“Half-Life is Lizzy’s new zine released by Gorilla Press where she poses the question: “Is it possible to love more than one person? (And not in the San Francisco poly-amorous way). Is it possible to completely forget about someone like the relationship never existed, or do you just manage it internally?” Lizzy was inspired to name her book after the Junot Diaz quote, “The half-life of love is forever,” which she holds as an ultimate truth: “How do I contain feelings for one person and feelings for another person that are similar and completely different at the same time?” she wonders, and then admits how utterly destructive it can be.”
