Publisher's Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of Love Her Wild comes The Dark Between Stars, a new collection of heartfelt, whimsical, and romantic poems from Instagram poetry sensation, Atticus. 

Atticus has captured the hearts and minds of nearly 700k 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 agonizing 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 light-hearted, 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.

My Only Complaint is it's too Short

I loved listening to his voice and his delivery was on point. I wish the book was longer.

not nearly long enough.

This book took me 5 minutes, when I needed ten or twelve.
There is nothing more beautiful than something that we desire to last longer.

Freshman effort

I understand how much courage it takes to put your poetry out there....I found this collection had no surprises for me, no moments of new inspiration or insights. It’s more like those banal FB posts everyone thinks are so worthy of interest.

I was shocked how boring it sounded

I was looking forward to a good read but it was dull and boring material, his voice was also very boring to me. sorry...but his poetry is good but this was boring to listen to each word he said with little to no feeling.

Atticus

He’s good but sounds like every other poet out there. Always about the women and Paris... overkill.

Words that you’ve always wanted to hear from a man.

I love his work and will continue to listen to his poems over and over and over again.
