Richmond, VA Author Releases Insanity By Increments, Stories Inspired By Depression
Insanity By Increments, a collection of short stories, examines the darker side of the human condition with characters that reveal humanity in the midst of distress. Author Alaric Cabiling has one of the most distinct authorial voices in literature today, putting his penchant for subtlety and persuasive language on display in his debut work of fiction.
[ClickPress, Wed Jul 15 2015] Richmond author Alaric Cabiling has published Insanity By Increments, his first published work since the release of 2009's The Darkest Day and 2013's Gray Rigorism. In Insanity By Increments, Cabiling reveals characters at their most vulnerable states, in subtle moments that alter each character's destiny forever.
Two brothers test fate. A father mourns the loss of his child. An old abandoned home is the scene of a final journey into the past. A man revisits the scene of a one-night stand. Each story is unforgiving in its attempt at revealing the transcendental from the mundane.
The book is available for order at:
Barnes & Noble Nook
Few books feature the psychological insight and gripping attention to detail that Insanity By Increments exhibits. The lyrical prose flows smoothly and the transitions between time stamps are cinematic. Few books dwelling on the darker side of the human condition present subtle tragedies with such startling clarity, haunting the reader well after the collection has been read.
About Alaric Cabiling:
Originally from Baltimore, MD, Cabiling is an avid fan of short fiction and has lived in Richmond, Va. for the past 13 years. A depression patient, Cabiling has sought to shed light on the devastating effects of the condition and the relative lack of understanding that complicates relationships between loved ones and patients suffering from the illness. His 2009 collection of poetry, The Darkest Day, published by Praenomen Press of Richmond, Va. in limited quantities, chronicles his own experiences with depression and is a bright example of how the arts can provide therapeutic value during the recovery period.
