If Grindr/Tinder were a book, this book would be it. A fantastic look into gay hookup/dating culture in the age of the Smart Phone; each story is its own, but all weave together to map out the paths that characters take and the web of relationships they form.
Seriously though... this book is too real.— From Avery
In these unconventional, interconnected stories of first-person narratives that also include text messages and Facebook posts, gay men look for love, steal office supplies, hook up on Grindr, bake pies, see therapists, have threesomes with ghosts, and fear happiness. With wry abandon and a beguiling heart, Everything Is Awful and You're a Terrible Person is a deadpan, tragicomic exploration of love, desire, and dysfunction in the twenty-first century.
Daniel Zomparelli is editor and founder of Poetry Is Dead magazine, and the author of the poetry collections Davie Street Translations and (with Dina Del Bucchia) Rom Com. This is his first work of fiction.
