The Wild Detectives says
Join us for the presentation of Icarian Flux, verteran Colin D. Halloran’s literary exploration of post-military life with PTSD.

Colin D. Halloran is a combat veteran of Afghanistan and an internationally published poet, essayist, and artist.

His debut collection, Shortly Thereafter, a memoir-in-verse documenting his experiences on the front lines of Afghanistan and the impact they had on him when returning to civilian life, won the 2012 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award, and was declared a Massachusetts Must-Read Book of 2013.

His follow-up collection, Icarian Flux (Main Street Rag Publishing Co., 2015), picks up where Shortly Thereafter left off, exploring his post-military life with PTSD.

However, Icarian Flux leaves behind the direct narrative non-fiction style. It relies on experimental narration and form, metaphor, and, most prominently, persona to delve into the highs and lows of a changed worldview and understanding of the self.

Halloran holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Fairfield University, where he now teaches. He lives in Boston.
