Everything Is Awful And You're A Terrible Person
By Daniel Zomparelli
A YouTube star becomes famous after he documents his breakup online. An anxious, lactose-intolerant office worker obsesses over a stranger who says "Nice shorts, bro" to him in passing. A couple wants to open up their relationship to a ghost. A monster just wants to find love in his human skin.
In these unconventional, interconnected stories―the first work of fiction by acclaimed poet Daniel Zomparelli, editor-in-chief of Poetry Is Dead magazine―gay men look for love in any way possible. From social media, to finding someone within a dream, the ways in which these characters search for joy becomes both limitless and overwhelming.
With wry abandon and a beguiling heart, Everything Is Awful And You're A Terrible Person is a deadpan, tragicomic exploration of love, desire, and dysfunction in the twenty-first century.Paperback: 176 pages
