Lullabies for Suffering
by Caroline Kepnes, Gabino Iglesias, John FD Taff, Mercedes M Yardley, Mark Matthews, & Kealan Patrick Burke
Come, listen to these Lullabies For Suffering.
Addiction starts like a sweet lullaby sung by a trusted loved one. It washes away the pains of the day and wraps you in the warmness of the womb where nothing hurts and every dream is possible. But soon enough, this warm state of bliss becomes a cold shiver. The ecstasy and dreams become nightmares, and for the sick and suffering addict, we can’t stop listening to the lullaby. We crave to hear the siren song as it rips us apart.
Each story in Lullabies For Suffering features the insidious nature of addiction—damaged humans craving for highs and wholeness but finding something more tragic and horrific on the other side. An incredibly talented group of writers sing these songs of suffering. You’re invited to listen.
