Have you ever thought life is tougher on you than others? Did you grow up too fast? Maybe you are one of The Elderly Kids. Inside you'll find seven wildly different stories of what life does to us.
My collection is a fun creolization of action and beauty mixed with a dark-hued lyricism. Flirting with comedy, drama, and the supernatural, these tales are packed with language that produces comic book visuals. Brought to life by a try everything man-beast who is one crummy performance evaluation away from becoming a suicidal English teacher, this collection grapples with pharmaceutical temptations, the fangs of family, and the dance that is alcohol. It also navigates stepfatherdom, energy drink madness, the vortexes of race and rap, baby bombs and abuse.
Who in this zoo of protagonists will find their way and land on the shores of their own happiness? Each story is a unique journey into the universal question of "What if?" Take this fifteen dollar voyage into the unknown and get to know The Elderly Kids.
