POSTCARDS FROM BEYOND REALITY

PRESS RELEASE:

 

After a short memoir, a novella, and two novels, Bernard Jan presents his new literary form!

 

Already in his most recent YA cross-genre novel, Cruel Summer, Bernard Jan has set himself a new challenge, testing his abilities and inspiration to write poetry. A year after releasing Cruel Summer and as an extension to his novel, Bernard Jan is self-publishing the poetry book Postcards From Beyond Reality: The Selected Poems of Michael Daniels as the seventeen-year-old protagonist from Cruel Summer.

 

Michael’s life has been a cocktail of melancholy, sorrow, and desire. But when a talented and promising skateboarder dips his pen into poetry, what will his passion create?

 

After a lifetime of abuse and the tragic loss of his mother, NYC teen Michael Daniels needed an outlet. Despite his cheerful nature, his inner mind was teeming with the stark contrast of darkness and light. So, in this volume full of imagery and symbolism, his underground rhymes reflect days full of extreme sports, failed relationships, and nostalgic memories.

 

Written by Bernard Jan in character as the hero from his novel Cruel Summer, this channeled view of the world is an extravaganza of extremes. And in its groundbreaking perspectives, you will discover the cries of a heart longing to be understood.

These unusual literary postcards were first published in Croatian in 2003. The lovers of poetry now have an opportunity to read this collection of sixty-one poems in English too.

 

Previous books by Bernard Jan self-published in English are A World Without Color (2017), Look for Me Under the Rainbow (2018), January River (2020), and Cruel Summer (2021).

Postcards From Beyond Reality: The Selected Poems of Michael Daniels will be available on Amazon as an eBook and a paperback.
