‘A modern day Byron for the Instagram generation’ – presenting The Dark Between Stars, the new book by poetry sensation Atticus
More about the book!
From the internationally bestselling author of Love Her Wild comes The Dark Between Stars, a new illustrated collection of heartfelt, whimsical and romantic poems from Instagram poetry sensation, Atticus.
Atticus has captured the hearts and minds of nearly 700,000 followers (including stars like Karlie Kloss, Emma Roberts and Alicia Keys).
In his second collection of poetry, The Dark Between Stars, he turns his attention to the dualities of our lived experiences – the inescapable connections between our highest highs and lowest lows.
He captures the infectious energy of starting a relationship, the tumultuous realities of commitment, and the agonising nostalgia of being alone again. While grappling with the question of how to live with purpose and find meaning in the journey, these poems offer both honest explorations of loneliness and our search for connection, as well as lighthearted, humorous observations.
As Atticus writes poignantly about dancing, Paris, jazz clubs, sunsets, sharing a bottle of wine on the river, rainy days, creating and destroying, he illustrates that we need moments of both beauty and pain – the darkness and the stars – to fully appreciate all that life and love have to offer.
