Posted on by urbangraffito Posted in Fiction, Writing | Leave a comment

Spanning the Reagan/Mulroney 1980s, to the Bush/Chrétien 1990s into the present day – Nathaniel George Moore has created a spirited, humourous microcosm of a middle class family’s disintegration in the new millennium. Expectantly clinging to the myths once held religiously, wherein ‘more is good, much is better, hard work always wins out’ – myths crumbling all the faster the harder The Galores attempt to hold on to them.

Urban Graffiti, Issue 11 [Vice & Debauchery Issue]

These stories and poems are not for the faint of heart, the timid, or the prudish. They upset, they outrage, they titillate and then make you ask why? All the things excellent transgressive literature should do.
