The Unbearable Opulence of Awesome (a collection of short stories)


The Unbearable Opulence of Awesome is a collection of short stories written over the past 10 years by journalist/writer/performer Trent Wilkie.

In a volume that houses everything from the utterly inane to the sincerest of tragedies, this volume explores ideas and situations that don’t specifically rest in any genre. Although based in fiction, there are real life experiences intertwined in the tales which cover themes and imagery that is specific to the intellectual and adventurous. There will also be nudity.

(Hopefully) coming soon.
