Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. Lonely Christopher dramatically ended a romantic relationship in Père Lachaise Cemetery on Christmas Day. This intense and trenchant verse series, written about the crisis from one January to the next, uses poetry as durational art. This unique break-up book focuses the grief of lost love to develop complex emotional themes in a refreshing rococo style. A generous, achingly gorgeous meditation on loss and loneliness, IN A JANUARY WOULD invites readers to feel everything a person feels as his heart's capacity is deepened by grief.
Lonely Christopher is the author of the poetry collections IN A JANUARY WOULD (Roof Books, 2020), THE RESIGNATION (Roof Books, 2018), THERE: A NOVEL OF MANNERS (Writers' Collective of Kristiania, Inc., 2017), Death & Disaster Series and the short story collection The Mechanics of Homosexual Intercourse. His plays have been presented in Canada, China, and the United States. His film credits include several international shorts and the feature MOM, which he wrote and directed. He works for homeless queer youth and lives in Brooklyn with his partner Rijard Bergeron.Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
