Book Feature - Rotting by Alex Farivar
HBL Note: I don’t often review or feature poetry on this site, but I recently had two authors reach out to me about their collection of poems that intrigued me. The first was Alex Farivar who wrote this book as a personal method of self-improvement. He shares his struggles with mental health and drug addiction through poetry, prose, and notes.

From the publisher:
ROTTING is a collection of dark and lyrical poetry, prose, and notes during a time of inquisitiveness and self-exploration. Questioning life and existence, Alex Farivar shares stories of drug addiction, suicidal tendencies, depression, self-loathing, death, passion, and sex. Far from the conventional style of self-improvement, this book dives into the various ways one can combat their demons, and the ways one can be overpowered by them.
