Talking In The Dark: A Poetry Memoir
PUSH continues to break new ground with this remarkable poetry memoir of growing up, coming out, and exploring love.
This is a memoir that is lived in moments. The moments you know - when you see your parents' marriage dissolving, when you realize you're a boy who likes boys, when you speak the truth and don't know if it will be heard. The moments you don't recognize until later - when you leave things unsaid (even to yourself), when you feel your boyfriend letting go, when you give up on love. And the moment you get love back.
In an amazing narrative of poems, Billy Merrell tells an ordinary story in an extraordinary way.
Billy Merrell was born in 1982. He was the winner of the first PUSH Writing Internship, and his work appeared in the anthology You Are Here, This Is Now: The Best Young Writers and Artists In America. He currently lives in Florida, in a room covered with photographs.
