Against the Moon: Poetry, Lyrics, and Short Stories (Paperback)
Wander into a dark and wondrous world of emotion in Eric Barry's debut anthology of poetry, lyrics, and short stories. Barry infuses his unmistakable voice into each piece of writing, reflecting upon experiences from his own past and struggles as a teenager, to the increasing sense of isolation we're all encountering in our digital world.
If I paint the world as you see fitWill the strokes include myself in it?
As perspectives evolve from childlike wonder to deep and foreboding disillusionment, Against the Moon tackles love, depression, and even diarrhea on a first date with lyrical and heartbreaking earnestness.
