The American Book of the Dead

Description
The American Book of the Dead is an epic poem, a manifesto full of guts and gusto for all long-lost souls on the road, a pamphlet of promise for the poverty-stricken and those put out for no particular reason, a postmodern sociological study, written in satire in the year of 2018, on a country who’s lost its individuality and identity, in five acts of stream-of-consciousness. The Hungry Chimera has called it “brutal and mesmerizing,” while Edify Fiction proclaims that it “assaults and assuages the senses.”
