Michael Langthorne / Author, Navigating Infinity
Whiskey screaming father,
whiskey crying mother,
it’s nobody’s fault,
we betrayed one another.
Bury the marriage,
let them fight, curse, and bicker,
I was torn-up by hate
for their cheap blended liquor.
About the Author
Michael is an Adult Child of Alcoholics in the continuous process of cleansing and healing (there is no recovery). His first novel, Navigating Infinity, is the loosely autobiographical story of Wilbur Topsail, "child of alcoholics growing into an adult, trying to find his place in the world and trying to be accepted for who he is." Kirkus Reviews said of the book, "…an effective, dark look at growing up with alcoholic parents."
Michael's interests include travel, music, photography, art, history of photography and cinema, history of vaudeville, and of course writing.
