Living in a Paracosm (Paperback)
You are about to step into an alternative world than the one that you know. And before you enter, bring a pair of flippers, an umbrella, and a great deal appetite for humor. Through your adventure, you'll receive potent doses of satire, humor, sarcasm, logic, and 'what if' scenarios. And if you're lucky, you may even find (and have a conversation with) yourself, there.
Living in a Paracosm is an exercise in learning that the same rules do not apply to everything and reason doesn't always reign supreme. What is important is that you be yourself and find your unique voice in life. Written in a lyrical style, not only does the author present a skewed version of reality, but he also elucidates it with an escapist profundity. A fair bit of poems will include illustrations that complete and better explain them and are written to awaken a feeling of wonder within you.
The poised rhymes will have you grounded. And yet the artistic intent alludes to an elusive dystopia hinting at the works of Dali or Kahlo combined with the comedy of Bo Burnham. And if you're courageous enough to keep treading the slippery path, you'll experience a myriad of other emotions some of which might be new to you.
Philosophical, funny, and sometimes downright obtuse, each poem will reflect distinct humanness and will keep you entertained for a long time.
