I Offered Myself As The Sea is the first collection of poems by Eric Paul, lyricist and vocalist for the revered bands Arab On Radar and The Chinese Stars,
presented in a perfect bound paperback with art by his partner, Allison Cole. Paul's poems offer always honest and sometimes surreal keyhole glimpses into the trials of his love, life, past, present and future.
"Much like his music, Eric Paul's poems are sharp and strange and unafraid. When it comes to the honest thing, the unsentimental, the line that cuts the legs out from under the obvious, Paul is the real deal, a guy who, to paraphrase the man himself, can get some."
--Sam Lipsyte, author of Venus Drive, The Subject Steve, and Home Land
"Providence's own punk rock Bukowski. A sex damaged exploration that is inflamatory,brutally funny and self revealing. Leave a copy at your nearest kindergarden or church and watch the fun begin..."
--Bob Otis, of Drop Dead
