Kirk Andersen is a longtime resident of Tennessee and board game designer who did a two-year stint in the US Army after high school, pursued a journalism degree at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville before dropping out, and currently lives with his nonagenarian mother, autistic brother, and his collection of seven hundred board games. He has published his new book “The Poetry and Writings of an Outsider”: an entertaining yet poignant literary debut.

“The Poetry and Writings of an Outsider” is a collection of poetry and short fiction as well as some autobiographical sketches from an author living on the outside of society. Never fully integrated into his society, he feels like he has always been on the outside looking in and his stories are a reflection of that.

The stories range from Orwellian science fiction to juvenile and fairy tales and a variety of personas in the poetry. Written as a rebellion and backlash against the literary publications of the day and their refusal to publish his work, the book has four categories: poetry, short stories, short shorts, and slice-of-life vignettes. It is a personal testament of the author and his life on the fringes of society.

Published by Page Publishing, Kirk Andersen’s engrossing book is an intriguing compilation of fiction, autobiography, and poetry reflecting the perspective of a self-described outsider looking in.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “The Poetry and Writings of an Outsider” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
