The highly anticipated debut of a young New York poet and essayist

Andrew Durbin’s Mature Themes is a hybrid text of poetry, art criticism, and memoir focused on the subject of disingenuity—and what constitutes "personal experience" both online and IRL when to "go deep" in a culture of so many unreliable communication technologies is to resend a text at 3 AM. Throughout the book, Durbin’s voice mutates into others in order to uncover the fading specters of meaning buried under the pristine surfaces of art and Hollywood, locating below them the other realities that structure our experience of both.

ANDREW DURBIN is the author of several chapbooks, including Reveler and Believers. His work has appeared in the BOMB, The Boston Review, Fence, Mousse, Triple Canopy, and elsewhere. He co-edits Wonder and lives in New York.
