Poetry, chapbook, 21 pages, from Bottlecap Press.
Autobiography is just one of the fantastic chapbooks brought forth by the prodigal Luis Neer. Written in a week-long haze, Neer’s writing makes it easy to forget that they were seventeen when this was published. Poems that deal with longing and the intensity that comes with teenage hormones, Autobiography is a fantastic read.
"A nebula (Latin for 'cloud') is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Originally, nebula was a name for any diffuse astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way. I just learned this after I read this book. This book which made me want to be 'twelve and punk rock again.'"
-Lucy K Shaw, author of The Motion
"Neer states that a computer is just a stone after all, a profound statement that the advancement of the modern world is proportionally isolating. With soft spoken and thoughtful wit, Neer addresses the world around him, poetically and effectively. Autobiography is a sentimental confessional, where lyrical prose speaks better than paragraphs of text."
-Emily Sipiora, editor of Moloko House
