About the book
Equal parts flippant and plaintive, Nick Mulgrew’s first collection of poems, the myth of this is that we’re all in this together, is a three-part meditation on the ways in which people lose trust in each other, their communities, and themselves. Experimentally laced with monologue, anecdote and truism, these 32 self-aware, diary-esque poems languish in the small sadnesses and frayings of a terminally uncertain society in a socially-mediated age.
