This ain’t the famous Walt Whitman book. It’s good, tho.
The first book ever on Alt Lit Press. It is has 10 parts. Its author said of it, ‘i feel like my poems are like “representative” of “a corner/small part” of the thing that we call “alt lit” is. its good for The Alt Lit Press website to have representative materialz.’
An “instant classic” & “canonical work” in alt lit, this collection of short stories about “school” began Meta Knight’s “controversial” alt lit “career.”
Mirissa Leja is the Taylor Swift of alt lit. What she lacks in talent she more than makes up for in poetic whiny-ness. Have you ever been heartbroken, depressed, or upset w/ someone? This is the book for you.
This is probably the most intricate & thought-out piece of poetry I’ve seen published via a blog so far…haven’t really come across anything else like it…epic (in the classical sense of the word), formal, florid language…indescribable…read for yourself & decide…
(Confused by the poem? There are some explanatory notes from its author, in the form of a letter to lit critic Harold Bloom, included at the bottom of this post.)

This is a fukd up ebook. Bradley is apparently from Ohio. Bradley had a girlfriend who was “into alt lit,” & he gave it a shot himself too. Wow. This is the viral nature of alt lit. Truly viral. One time Bradley dined at “Applebee’s” alone. Truly shameful. Fuck this book. No, it’s p good tho.

This book of poetry & “etc.” has themes such as Subway & nihilism. Who is nick schulz? Nick schulz is supposedly a gender-transitioning person in Wisconsin with cats & social anxiety. My favorite lines from this book are: “There’s an ‘xtreme’ goldfish on a surfboard who’s transcending from a web page in to the real world on the back of a bag of cheese-crackers and I’m supposed to pretend this is normal or okay. What a weird fucking existence.”

This book is like if you mashed your keyboard with your face but then it somehow turned out readable (sort of) & was a narrative (sort of).
