Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by his belief that nature and mysticism held the secrets to life, Aaron Gilbreath went on a mind-expanding road trip with his best friend at age twenty. Listening to psychedelic music, bushwhacking off-trail, and downing everything from mushrooms to PCP, the people they met and the roads ahead of them blurred into a new sort of reality. A secondary landscape.

Review:

"Here, we see Gilbreath at twenty on a road trip from Vancouver to Oregon, looking for transcendence in potentially problematic ways. There's a corker of an opening sentence: 'We reached the Canadian border at 2am with the PCP hidden in Dean's insulin syringes and the weed buried in the peanut butter.' Gilbreath gets the tone exactly right: he's forthcoming about the process of searching that he went on a decade ago, even as he's honest about the fact that some of its characteristics may not have been wise. With his recent writings for The Paris Review (among others), Gilbreath has quickly become a writer whose every piece I savor. This chapbook, in just over 30 pages, offers a conscise version as to why." Vol 1 Brooklyn
