  • During My Nervous Breakdown...


Focusing on severe feelings of low self-worth, meaninglessness, and yearning for something unknown, Brandon Scott Gorrell (who has generated a large internet following of disenchanted youth) uses predominately science fiction imagery in direct, deadpan prose to describe humans in need of meaning that they feel hopeless to attain.

"[O]ne of the best books of American poetry I’ve read in years." - Michael Schaub, Bookslut

"Gorrell's book is a thoughtful yet humorous collection of entertaining poems. [...] Makes me wish I had kept up with poetry writing." - Jeffrey Brown, author of CLUMSY
