“Joshua Ellis’s EVERYONE I KNOW IS BROKENHEARTED is what it would be like if you screamed into the void…and then got a response. Ellis goes to the places intellectually and physically and emotionally that most people don’t want to visit and the result is a collection of essays that speaks to a nation on the verge of collapse, where the center is barely holding, and most people are just happy to hold onto the edges. Funny, sad, scary, and present.” — Tod Goldberg, New York Times bestselling author of GANGSTER NATION
Everyone I Know Is Brokenhearted is the first collection of essays, fiction, poetry and lyrics from Pulitzer-nominated writer, futurist and musician Joshua Ellis (Mondo 2000, Huffington Post, Las Vegas CityLife). Spanning two decades and touching everywhere from the mean streets of Juarez, Mexico to the Cold War paranoia of the Manhattan Project to 1990s punk rock basements to demon-haunted Southern Gothic horror to the Revelation of St. John – including the viral hit 2014 title essay – Everyone I Know Is Brokenhearted is a high-octane, funny, vulgar, erudite and deranged ride through the strangest corners of the new millennium. Available in ePub, MOBI and PDF.
