I am 100 depressed teenagers

 


 

24-hour diners, swimming pools, haunted McDonald’s, reincarnation and fame in remote East Africa: the poems in How To Appear Perfectly Indifferent While Crying on the Inside follow a young 20-something as he navigates break-ups, adulthood, technology and loneliness. This collection uses imagery and irony, self-deprecating humour and the poignant pop culture reference to create a work that is funny, earnest and colloquial.

 

Jay Winston Ritchie is the author of Something You Were, Might Have Been, or Have Come to Represent (Insomniac Press, 2014). How to Remain Perfectly Indifferent While Crying on the Inside is his first book of poetry. He lives in Montréal.
