The long road to publication for The Mourning After is finally over and I couldn't be prouder to announce the book is now live at Amazon. More than any title I've published at Moran Press, this book presented numerous challenges due to the unique nature of The Mourning After. Part memoir, part commentary on the American way of life, The Mourning After will occupy a singular space in letters and resist attempts to place it in a particular genre.
The Mourning After traces the fractured narrative of the writer's life. From his childhood in the aftermath of America's Vietnam War, to his academic years in the shadow of 9/11, the portrait that emerges from this arresting collection is one of devastating loss, deep love, and unique introspection on what it means to be an American.
Many will ask questions about the book, but I can summarize it no better than this:
The Mourning After is an anti-war memoir painted in poetry, essays, and stories. Indeed I believe this book is the most profound anti-war memoir I've read in years. Of course, as the publisher, I'm biased. Download this book today at Amazon to experience this memoir for yourself.
