Eater of Mushrooms is a poetic novel, a story about an individual, who despite flaws, believes in love. The poems are read in order and use a mythology of personas and symbols to build a representation of people, emotions, and struggles. The characters represent loves and challenges, human and otherwise.
For the author, Eater of Mushrooms is sprinkled with flavors of mental illness, self-identity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and substance abuse. It simmers in the broth of anguish, ecstasy, loss; soaks in the hopefulness of love.
