Things Kept Burning is the culmination of a year and a half spent publishing in different literary journals and web zines. Told primarily by the same first person narrator - a writer battling demons on several fronts while searching for transcendence through a series of bizarre relationships, generally involving people from different worlds - these stories offer a compelling examination of American loneliness and hope, while exploring the thin line between reality and fiction. The book is also about the search for salvation through art. From the adventures of a college professor and his former student with Down Syndrome, to the evening spent in a porn star's hotel room, to the death of a best friend in a drug overdose, these eclectic narratives force the reader to pull back for a moment and question where they're going with their lives, while illuminating the absurdity of existence itself.
