NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
From the internationally bestselling author of Love Her Wild comes The Dark Between Stars, a new illustrated collection of heartfelt, whimsical, and romantic poems from Instagram poetry sensation, Atticus.
Atticus, has captured the hearts and minds of nearly 700k followers (including stars like Karlie Kloss, Emma Roberts, and Alicia Keys). In his second collection of poetry, The Dark Between Stars, he turns his attention to the dualities of our lived experiences—the inescapable connections between our highest highs and lowest lows. He captures the infectious energy of starting a relationship, the tumultuous realities of commitment, and the agonizing nostalgia of being alone again. While grappling with the question of how to live with purpose and find meaning in the journey, these poems offer both honest explorations of loneliness and our search for connection, as well as light-hearted, humorous observations. As Atticus writes poignantly about dancing, Paris, jazz clubs, sunsets, sharing a bottle of wine on the river, rainy days, creating, and destroying, he illustrates that we need moments of both beauty and pain—the darkness and the stars—to fully appreciate all that life and love have to offer.

Atticus writes about things that linger in your mind but you can never seem to put into coherent thoughts. In "The Dark Between the Stars," readers get all the sweet feelings of connection and security. His poems but me at peace, they are just clear enough to decipher but still leave you thinking about them. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a little bit of a lust for adventure in them. Beautifully written.
“Art has the answers to many of the questions we weren’t brave enough to ask.” The Dark Between the Stars by Atticus is a book filled with short poems and accompanied by inspiring photos. I did enjoy a lot fo this book. Some of the poems felt very cheesy or almost hallmark card like. But others seemed really moving to me. I marked several quotes to come back to later. Overall I give this book 4 stars.
An incredible book of poetry! Would absolutely recommend to anyone!!
