New York, NY (September 18, 2016) – Poet and blogger Geoffrey Dicker announces his fourth book, ”JOURNAL OF GRIEVANCES” which will be available to purchase through Amazon on September 20, 2016. The book marks Dicker’s first novel, a fictional autobiography, told in an unconventional way – through daily journal entries.
The official synopsis of JOURNAL OF GRIEVANCES:
Warning: this book is recommended for immature audiences only. It contains ridiculous amounts of adult language and really twisted situations. “Journal of Grievances” is a controversially raw and uncensored look into the ups and downs (both in and out of the bedroom) of a struggling, single gay male writer in New York. Told through daily journal entries on his year long approach to 40, the protagonist spills his guts with hilarious wit as he waxes philosophically and analyzes his raunchy sex life, drug addictions, debauched relationships, life encounters, and his frustrations with society while navigating through relationship drama and job-loss as he struggles to find his place in the world. This is Geoffrey Dicker’s first novel. He asks that if you are easily offended by profanity or graphic depictions of gay sex to please not buy this book. Alternately, he advises the reader to flip to any page and promises that within 2 sentences, you’ll be laughing.
“I’d like to think of this book as a gay loner version of ‘Sex and the City’ meets ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ meets ‘Catcher in the Rye,’ in other words – it’s completely fucked up! It’s an unconventional coming of age story with zero filters and even less apologies. All of the characters in this story remain nameless because what matters are their actions and how they affect the main character. Despite the story containing generous helpings of extreme gay sex, I think people – straight or gay – will relate to the situations and moral dilemmas the main character often finds himself in,” Dicker says.
He continues, “I’ve read so many books that never teach me anything new or make me think differently or at the very least, make me smile. JOURNAL OF GRIEVANCES will make the reader do all of these things, hopefully repeatedly. There are 11 months worth of daily journal entries and one month worth of random ideas, including a short story told almost exclusively in the F-word. You’ll never be the same again after reading this book.”
