Featuring 118 contributions from 57 writers in 26 countries, with many of the contributions reflecting the diverse backgrounds and cultures of the writers, and all writing in their own unique style, LONELY – A Collection of Poetry and Prose on Loneliness and Being Alone, is an extraordinary, unique and eclectic mixture of both traditional and modern verse, and short prose, from writers around the world.
Focusing on just about every aspect of loneliness and being alone, and covering topics as diverse as old age, bereavement, abandonment, divorce, entrapment, unrequited love, depression, trauma, failure and addiction, as well as the more abstract and esoteric, LONELY is already being acclaimed worldwide for its diversity and mix of writers and styles.
