Written in 2009, the autobiographical short novel, Moonlight on the Sunshine Roses, takes readers to rural Ohio where the lead character, Matt Wright, struggles to accept his life being turned upside down while the world collapses during the Great Recession. Set during a historic Presidential election, this American gothic story intertwines racism, homophobia, war, addiction, and love in a stunning fiction debut.
RELEASE DATE: August 2020.
Collecting fifteen new poems, selections from his two previously published books "This Beautiful Bizarre" (2010) and "Champagne" (2016), as well as unpublished early poems, with an extensive chronology written by his long-time editor, Maxton gives to his loyal and new readers a stunning magnum opus of his poetic achievements.
The Manhattan Man is a bizarre and colorful journey into the intelligent mind and hard partying life of Adam Mada, a Wall Street financier at 27 and a Manhattan enigma. When a voice claiming to be the Almighty delivers dire warnings to Adam in his pill-induced sleep, the jetsetter must choose whether to believe and prepare for his imminent demise, or to continue his disbelief of such an entity and go about his life. With stunning illustrations by JAPA.
Champagne is Montgomery Maxton's much-anticipated second poetry collection following his iconic 2010 debut collection This Beautiful Bizarre. With no table of contents or page numbers, Maxton once again refuses to adhere to traditional techniques, making this avant-garde work even more rare.
This Beautiful Bizarre is Montgomery Maxton's long-awaited debut collection of poetry. Haunting, beautiful, and one-of-a-kind, this book pulls you in and reminds you of what you have, what you have lost, and what may still come in life. Love, death, and aviation all come together in this iconic first collection.
