Erotographomania: Love Letters to M chronicles an all-consuming love affair between the author and the woman who fueled his creative fire and obsession. 

This book is something different than standard poetry. It is comprised mainly of transcriptions of real letters written to M as well as the corresponding photos of the originals. They show the progression of how this love grew to a nearly uncontrollable level and borderline madness. 

Throughout the book are insights and lectures on this unique affliction, his love for M, and the concept of love itself. 

Want to know how it started? How it grew? Want to know what became of C and M? You’ll have to read it to find out.
