Jorge A Barriere-Mendez has completed his second book “Shadowboxing”: a gripping and potent exploration of the nature of fear through a collection of stories and self-examinations.

When asked about his inspiration for the book, Barriere-Mendez said, “The way I conclude about important things is by writing. I create characters and situations and then I listen to my characters as they sort things out for me. Mostly, I’m interested in fears – all manifestations of fears. I believe that all we say and do, we say and do because of a fear, all can be retraced to a fear. To understand that dynamic (how our fears dictate who we are and become), inspired me to write this and all that I have ever written.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jorge A Barriere-Mendez’s poignant tales span across a ten-year period. The stories in the book take the form of an intriguing inner-dialogue, which confronts deep ontological issues. The reader is taken through a riveting exploration of the anxieties and fears inherent to human nature itself.

This creative and introspective work is sure to keep readers in contemplation. It is sure to please anyone looking for a thought-provoking read. The last section of the book is a highly imaginative post-apocalyptic story about a new beginning for mankind that reads like a movie. Humankind’s future is in the hands of children that must survive a haunted and mysterious forest full of hungry midgets, strange animals, and wicked gods. A new possibility for man that may, indeed, never happen.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Shadowboxing” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
