PHOTOGRAPHS OF MADNESS: INSIDE OUT
Cover: Soft cover
Author: Alec Ivan Fugate
Publisher: Back Patio Press
There exists an apartment that omits a warm and comfortable smell. Many have lived in it. All have gone missing, met a form of madness in that wicked place. "PHOTOGRAPHS OF MADNESS: INSIDE OUT" is a poetically styled flash fiction collection composed of four parts. Each section spans years between the last, linking each of the four unique character through the horrors they experienced in their cursed lives. Observe as the larger sickness at hand unfolds, dare to unveil the secrets behind that secret, damp door that reeks of cardamon pods. Using an abstract writing style and unique typesetting, Fugate showcases rapid mental decline and surreal imagery in this emotionally provocative and unnerving work.
Praise for PHOTOGRAPHS OF MADNESS:
"It’s the kind of text that is imbued with all of the best stuff: hidden meanings, implied silences and phantasmagorical imagery. The use of repetition here is fastidious and honestly, astounding. This is real work— work that reads like it was translated meticulously, without losing or sacrificing any of the heart."
- Mike Kleine, author of 'Kanley Stubrick' and 'Lonely Men Club'
“In Photographs of Madness: Inside Out, all sense and senses are ravaged. This a beautifully vivid and ridiculously poetic read.”
– Arielle Tipa, Founding Editor of Occulum and author of 'Daughter-Seed' (Empty Set Press, 2019)
