Product Overview

Side Step Me dips into pill-popping culture, a never-ending need for one-night stands, conspicuous consumption, intoxication. Happy doctors dispense pills like Halloween candy ? extolling the sensation of faux bliss, through the lonely intimacy; often, fever of New York. To create the work, the author pulls from his own experience, withdrawing from Celexa, cold turkey, because insurance ran dry. Capturing the cities inhabitants as they constantly navigate this forever-up-and-coming world, wait for lovers, or try to cope with their lives. Poetry and short stories take us through the bathhouses of online sex; they watch us as we traverse the subway and perpetually trade up. The many powerful people find stillness must be avoided, since the sickly things they do surface in the night. It?s a world where people kill for the perfect apartment. Yet. Finally the reasons for joy float into reality and are understood. Side Step Me is the compilation of Alex Geana?s work, bringing together ten years and the honing of a strong voice.
