New Hybrid Genre from Bitter Cherry Books...coming soon to the Ligonier Valley Library

Fiction. Poetry. "Bomb-pills, birthed birds, and the scorched Jacob's Ladder of a story- stoked neural brinkdom—BOMBYONDER is a gestalt of grim and Grimm. The mind as bombsight. The mind as timebomb. The prose products that singe this portrait of the psyche burning are tooled like circuitry on a dysfunctional motherboard. Except funnier. Livingston's unnamed protagonist—call her Psyche, Cogito, Dingbat, or even Carry—is endearing in her absurd quest for self-improvement. This is your brain on BOMBYONDER. We should all eat bombs and hack into our own Hera journeys."—Kim Gek Lin Short
