Prose poetry, paperback, 44 pages, from Metatron Press.

Life is snaking its way through the characters in Pony Castle. Bad things are happening to good people. Winner of the 2015 Metatron Prize, Sofia Banzhaf’s literary debut is enthralling, like staring into the dark and seeing a prism.

Sofia Banzhaf is a writer, actress, and filmmaker. She is the author of Pony Castle for which she received the Metatron Prize for Rising Authors of Contemporary Literature.

“[Banzhaf] writes like heaven, and it’s a drug I badly want. Wolf down Pony Castle, then eat every last sweet, singing crumb.”

-Lynn Crosbie, poet and novelist

“Sofia Banzhaf creates a captivating world where nothing is free and anything can happen.”

-Chelsea Hodson, author of Pity the Animal

Pony Castle reads like a line of crushed pill up the nose: a quick breath in and then the rush. Banzhaf’s writing is a straight chute to the most depraved of human behaviors, but within this brutal world, she finds grace and humanity.”

-Sarah Gerard, author of Binary Star
