This Is Not a Confession










Through these powerful and insightful essays, David Olimpio explores the residual effects of sexual abuse, divorce, and grief. With surprising candor and a disarming sense of humor, Olimpio takes on the outwardly wholesome landscape of his suburban Houston childhood and the complex sexual relationships in his adult life. Both poignant and poetic, This Is Not A Confession leaves us with a sense that our identities have the power to transcend our circumstances.


David Olimpio grew up in Texas, but currently lives and writes in Northern New Jersey. He believes that we create ourselves through the stories we tell, and that is what he aims to do every day. Usually, you can find him driving his pick-up around the Garden State with one of his two dogs, Rothko and Honey, both of whom maintain his photo blog at davidolimpio.com/category/photoblog. He has been published in The Nervous Breakdown, Awst Press, The Austin Review, The Rappahannock Review, Crate, and other places. You can find more about him at davidolimpio.com including links to his writing and photography. He tweets every day about a broad range of important topics, from the ontological meaning of dog-poop bags to the erotic potential of red velvet cake. He would love for you to join him: @notsolinear.
