9781935738251: The Blood Poetry

Is Epstein a despicable man? He's certainly trying desperately at something. When his wife disappears he's frantic to talk to his daughter. But what can he tell her? There must be a reason and he's all but sure about the gruesome answer. Can he protect Sylvia from the truth, from her terrible lineage and, ultimately, from himself? Off-beat and sordid, THE BLOOD POETRYis a twisted, yet honest look at our desire to connect with others and the ways in which we are often stymied by our own efforts to get closer. Epstein is a curious mix of monster and romantic struggling to maintain a shred of dignity in his dingy, beat down world.

About the Author:

Leland studied Creative Writing and Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University where he discovered the enormous possibilities of poetry, experimentation, and critical theory. He eventually earned an MFA in Writing from Columbia University on a merit fellowship. He has published fiction in Open City, Fence, Dark Sky Magazine, Drunken Boat, and Monkey Bicycle, among other literary journals. He is also the project director for an upcoming literary event series, Phantasmagoria: Language and Technology of Suffering, for which he received fiscal sponsorship from the New York Foundation for the Arts. He lives in Brooklyn, NY. About The Blood Poetry, Shelf Unbound magazine called it, "A brilliant, brutal assault of a novel." Grace Krilanovich, author of The Orange Eats Creeps, said it's "ragged, supercharged and wildly inappropriate. A Bataille sitcom full of meat and mommies."

Review:

"If one new horror book out there embodies the intelligence of great literary fiction with the best elements of psychological horror, The Blood Poetry has to be it...paragraphs screamed, asking to be taken out and plastered on gigantic billboards so everyone could enjoy their humor, brutality or blood-splattered philosophy." --Horror Talk

"Pitts-Gonzalez tears apart what we know of structure and character, narrative and theme ... has brought to us his vision and his is uncompromisingly surreal and vicious in its value of entertainment."  --Shock Horror

"The Blood Poetry is a brilliant, brutal assault of a novel--raw, twisted, and compulsively readable." --Shelf Unbound

"From some forgotten box under Patrick Bateman's bed comes this rat rod of a novel: ragged, supercharged and wildly inappropriate...The main pervert's agony would be harrowing if it didn't also happen to be very funny."
Grace Krilanovich, author of The Orange Eats Creeps

 "Horror writing that is as it should be: penetrating deep into the psyche, so much so that it changes how you look at the world. We think it will go down as a classic." -- Farley's Bookshop
