"To live, to fail, to err, to triumph, to re-create life out of life." James Joyce
backpocket e-pistles is Michael's first book. This collection of edited e-mail correspondence between MIKE D and his three best friends during 1996, when all four guys were in college offers an illuminating look into the lives of sincere, rebellious, horny and creative young men at the turn of the century, before smart phones and APPS took over our fucking lives.
VAGABOND is Michael's most recent book. This collection of linked short stories, interpolated with prose and poetic impressions, explores a writer's insatiable curiosity and lust for life. These stories are non traditional, immersive and contemplative. Through Michael's unique writing style, tone and pace, these stories brings the reader right into the moment where he/she experiences the action directly and is not hammered over the head with moralizing or a forced plot point.
