THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK
Poetic Deployment is Alexander Prezioso's first published book. Prior to being published, Alex had attempted several times to write a science fiction novel which he never finished. Then in 2005, after returning home from a military deployment to Iraq, adjusting to civilian life was difficult for Alex. He endured many sleepless nights with no outlet in the wee hours of the morning. As a therapeutic way to express his thoughts and feelings, Alex began writing Poetic Deployment to tell his story, and to share his experience and feelings. After publishing Poetic Deployment, Alex began his journey with helping others express themselves through writing, as a way to cope with similar experiences.
