I COULD BE YOUR NEIGHBOR, ISN'T THAT HORRIFYING?
Cover: Soft cover
Cover Type: Matte
Author: Cavin Bryce Gonzalez
Publisher: Back Patio Press
These are the confessions of a stagnant college graduate seeking solace from his invasive thoughts and the Floridian-Hellscape written in the form of short stories, poems, and everything in-between. Take a tour around a neighborhood plagued by the presence of a young hermit struggling with a gas station hot dog diet, an evil twin, obnoxious neighbors, elves, and the ever present whispers from inside his noggin urging him toward self destruction.
“’I COULD BE YOUR NEIGHBOR’ is like a fun-house mirror. You’ll recognize yourself in it but you may not like the reflection.”
– Hannah Gordon, literary angel and CHEAP POP managing editor
“Cavin Gonzalez could be John Barth’s long lost secret step baby. With an appetite for disaster and experimental fiction, Gonzalez is a writer to watch. ‘I Could be Your Neighbor, Isn’t That Horrifying?’ is one young man’s reckoning that includes puppies, honey chipotle chicken crispers, and all kinds of heart.”
– Michael Graves, author of "Parade" and "Dirty One"
“I read Cavin’s flash collection then I shaved my head and drove on the wrong side of the highway, ran naked through Target.”
– Mike Andrelczyk, author of "The Iguana Green City & Other Poems"
“Cavin Gonzalez is a Floridian Rimbaud, with eyes that see the world more clearly than we do. ’I COULD BE YOUR NEIGHBOR’, a hybrid of prose and poetry, not really comfortable being either, reminds me of the newly-discovered purple octopi roaming the ocean floor – weird, funny, lovable, unexpected, and with more than a touch of menace. Gonzalez’ words are open, yet opaque, horrific and horrifically funny.”
– James Nulick, author of "Haunted Girlfriend"
