"In these unique stories, Graziano's use of surrealism juxtaposed with realism creates an unusual tension that makes you want to keep reading to figure out what is happening. The Seagull is almost like Godot, except for the fact that he does actually show up and then he keeps showing up. Long after you put down the collection, you will be left wondering who the hell is The Seagull anyway?"

"Rob Azevedo, the gregarious radio host and Manchester's resident raconteur, now throws another one of his many hats into the poetry arena, and he does not disappoint in his debut collection, Turning on the Wasp. Azevedo's verse combines Bukowski's rawness with Kerouac's cosmic musings-maybe a dash of Rimbaud-thrown in a Petri dish with his own distinct poetic vision.

The characters in Nathan Graziano's dark fictional backdrop are waiting--waiting for the next fix, the next fling, the next inevitable miscue or mistake. This collection of short prose pieces tackles the breakdown of the modern marriage, the existential despair of technological times, and the ubiquity of the current opioid epidemic.

It's 1992. Kurt Cobain is alive, flannel is everywhere, and Hamlet Burns is starting college. Little does he know he faces four years of rowdy roommates, STDs, and ill-timed explosions of gas. Along the way, Ham drinks a few beers, breaks a few hearts, and has a near-fatal brush with Hootie and the Blowfish.
