Autobiographical fiction written as a collection of letters
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Author Lamar Ariel is set to release an innovative and exciting collection of letters in his first book entitled Ready to Male. The work infuses elements of short story and memoir writing styles to provide a snapshot of the authors' ongoing journey to creatively examine rather than dismiss his personal thoughts.
Using humor, wordplay, poetry, and a healthy dose of sarcasm – each chapter of Ready to Male contains exaggerated interpretations of real life experiences. The work provides an intimate vessel for eaves-dropping on one man's attempt to make sense of his emotions and the rapidly changing world around him. "Lamar Ariel writes a letter to us all—offering a heartfelt and humorous peak into his world," states Toby Thompkins, author of The Real Lives of Strong Black Women.
As exemplified through letters such as "Dear No Strings Attached"—And in the middle of it all, there was the time I spent not realizing that—without those four required strings—we couldn't produce any notes in harmony. —each letter tells an honest and relatable story about the author's relationship with characters that have existed in his life. "If Paul Beatty and James Hardy had a love child, he would be Lamar Ariel. Ready to Male is witty, poignant, and as delightful of a read as you will find."--Ferentz Lafargue, author of Songs in the Key of My Life.
With the release of his book this week, the author takes a moment to reflect upon his work, "It's wonderful to passionately create something where the greatest reward is the fact that it simply exists."
