From musings about the nature of truth to snippets of nonsensical logic, Jivan's new collection of poems and essays is as diverse, all-encompassing, and experiential as life itself.
Influenced by countries and cultures across the globe, the collection draws inspiration from the hills of the Midwest all the way to India and Europe. Yet another major influence was Allen Ginsberg, a personal mentor of Jivan and champion of his poetry.
For those who enjoy the eclectic and boundary-pushing works of Charles Bukowski and William Stafford, Jivan's work is sure to delight, challenge, and engage.
If you are a seeker of truth in any form, let Stories for Psychotic Children be your next outlet to explore alternative thinking and insights about life from this talented and commanding voice in today's poetry community.

About the Author
Jivan grew up in the Midwest. He studied both literature and philosophy at college, and after graduation, he relocated to the West with his trusty Honda and cat, Joplin.
After several years, he moved to Europe with little more than a suitcase and a pen. He based himself primarily out of Prague and Budapest, and he set to work on completing his first book of short stories. He also began annual pilgrimages to India.
He currently resides back in the Midwest, where he continues to write poetry and essays and shares his work with friends over wine or coffee, ever inspiring others to learn, grow, and create.
