Featuring New Young Author:  Jonathan J. Swerdlow


A collection of 22 short stories & long-form poems on the human experience

Today’s world is not very human. But we are humans all the same. Our thoughts, our dreams, our aspirations. Everything that we feel. That is what makes us human. And we really aren’t all so different.
We have different experiences. Different thoughts. Different dreams. Different aspirations. I would be cautious, though, to say that we have different feelings. It is our emotions that make us human – who we are is unique; what we are is the same.
The purpose of this collection is to explore that idea: that through different people in different situations, I might share with you certain feelings. Perhaps not my own feelings. Perhaps not those of others. But feelings nonetheless. My goal is to explore what it means to be human. Especially in a not-so-human world.
While the included pieces are often influenced by my own experiences or those of people I know, their purpose is for you to see yourself. To engage in self-reflection. To see yourself in others. To understand yourself and others. I can’t claim that this collection is quite so profound. But I can try. And I would ask of you the same.

Who are the people you see when you walk down the street? Who are your colleagues at work? Your childhood friends? Everyone you know? Everyone you don’t? Who are you? And what does it mean to be human?
Being human isn’t easy. People are often misunderstood. Not due to misinterpretation, but due to a lack of understanding. We are all human, and we are all the same — mostly. Everything you feel, other people feel, too. All of your struggles are shared by others. So why suffer alone? Why not help each other, as a species, and come together to create a better world?
You, Man, Emotion is an emotionally-charged collection of short stories and long-form poems centered around these ideas. By addressing topics such as individuality, humanity, society, and human emotions, this collection opens a door into the world of other people.
Specifically, You, Man, Emotion draws attention to the struggles people face in today’s world. From isolation to lack of purpose and direction, each included piece serves as a mechanism for self-reflection and understanding — both of yourself and others.


A better life begins with other people. A better life creates a better world. And a better world begins with you. But without understanding, there can be no change.
