Porcelain Bird is a story of emotional vulnerability that shapes the author’s perception of his past and soon-to-slip-away West Coast present. Matt Misikov ruminates ever-lasting melancholy while yearning, both physically and mentally, for a state of happiness that might just be hiding in a maximalist and obscure image of the future.

But I also write because I have to -- I can’t not write.”
