Description

Teen Surf Goth is a book of fantasy built on internet dreams and nostalgia for what never existed: the fantasy of an eternal American youth, the wish that love can save us, the dream that who we were on mushrooms was the real self, the hope that we can practice for death. This book is a re-projection of the images projected on us every day. It’s also an affirmation that, as misguided as we are, we too deserve poetry. “
-Melissa Broder, aka @sosadtoday

“Come thru, come all—see the Teen Surf Goth in its unnatural habitat. See it too grown up for The Ataris, panic-eating peanut butter, too smart to avoid undercutting its carbonated immaturity, too aware of love to take the top bunk out to sea forever. Oscar Bruno d’Artois’s debut slings Tumblr standup on the frontend, then shyly proffers fear and sweetness on the DL.”
-Mike Young, author of Sprezzatura

“This is a poetry book right?”
-Peter BD, internet artist

Teen Surf Goth is a first-hand account of life lived in an existential daze. From Bushwick to Berlin, d’Artois’s peripatetic search for poetic consciousness and metaphysical bliss is constantly waylaid by nut butters, memes, drugs, and self-doubt.

Oscar d’Artois was born in 1989 in Paris, France. He currently lives in Berlin, Germany.

Perfect-bound. First edition, first printing.
Cover design by Guillaume Morissette.
