"What you are holding in your hands is a curious thing. This book is a memoir, although certainly not a traditional one. Call it an 'experimental, intellectual memoir.'"
So begins this startling and compelling collection of 40 pieces that reflect the passion, fears, and confusion of a young man trying to make sense of, find meaning in, and discover his place in the world between the ages of 17 and 25. Full of rhythmic, vivid language, Growing Up the Antichrist uses poetry as a starting point to express profound, maddening, and sometimes hilarious emotional truths about the process of growing up in the early 21st century, grappling with nostalgia, and struggling as an outsider (even among the outsiders). Driven by a complex, but enduring, hope and balancing a respect for and distaste of the past, this "intellectual memoir" goes beyond the author's own backstory to speak to universal experiences that unite us across the generations.
