A disarming, tragicomic story collection about looking for true love in a cesspool of weird dysfunction and bad dates.

In these unconventional, interconnected stories of first-person narratives that also include text messages and Facebook posts, gay men look for love, steal office supplies, hook up on Grindr, bake pies, see therapists, have threesomes with ghosts, and fear happiness. With wry abandon and a beguiling heart, Everything Is Awful and You're a Terrible Person is a deadpan, tragicomic exploration of love, desire, and dysfunction in the twenty-first century.

Daniel Zomparelli is editor and founder of Poetry Is Dead magazine, and the author of the poetry collections Davie Street Translations and (with Dina Del Bucchia) Rom Com. This is his first work of fiction.

I don't know what I was expecting when I started reading this, but I didn't expect it to be so funny, yet also moving in parts or to be charmed by some of these characters. Since it is a short story collection, there are often going to be misses mixed in with the winners, and this is true here. But overall, I enjoyed this collection quite a bit.
