I am 100 depressed teenagers

 

24-hour diners, swimming pools, haunted McDonald’s, reincarnation and fame in remote East Africa: the poems in How To Appear Perfectly Indifferent While Crying on the Inside follow a young 20-something as he navigates break-ups, adulthood, technology and loneliness. This collection uses imagery and irony, self-deprecating humour and the poignant pop culture reference to create a work that is funny, earnest and colloquial.

 

Jay Ritchie studies poetry and performance of the 20th and 21st centuries. He is author of the poetry collections  Cheer Up, Jay Ritchie (Coach House Books, 2017) and  How to Appear Perfectly Indifferent While Crying On the Inside (Metatron Press, 2014). His creative writing has been performed on CBC Radio, at the Newmarket National 10-minute Play Festival, and as part of a digital installation at the PHI Centre.
