I COULD BE YOUR NEIGHBOR, ISN'T THAT HORRIFYING? [PRE-ORDER]
[to be released January 17th]
Cover: Soft cover
Author: Cavin Bryce Gonzalez
Publisher: Back Patio Press
These are the confessions of a depraved man seeking solace from his invasive thoughts and the Floridian-Hellscape. Short stories. Poems. Some are real. Some are not. You can decide what you want to believe as you take a tour around a neighborhood plagued by the presence of a college graduate struggling with a gas station hot dog diet, an evil twin, obnoxious neighbors, and the ever present whispers from inside his noggin.
“’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"
