Claremont, CA – August 02, 2019 – Pelekinesis is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Louder Than Goodbye, new literary nonfiction from Allen Callaci, available November 1, 2019 worldwide.

Why do we mourn the passing of iconic figures such as Carrie Fisher, Prince or even an obscure regional horror movie host from our youth? Why do we mourn the passing of larger-than-life figures whom we never knew in life as if they were an old friend? Louder Than Goodbye: Reflections and Remembrances from Kurt Cobain to Mary Tyler Moore to the Most Sinister Man to Ever Walk the Earth is a collection of meditations on the passing of pop culture figures and the personal connections to such figures. All were initially written as instant, unfiltered reactions to the unexpected passing of an icon which originally appeared in abridged form in blogs and publications such as BK Nation, The Huffington Post and the I.E. Weekly. They were not written as formal obituaries outlining a person’s career but reflections on how the loss of a larger than life figure can act as a barometer and unwitting spiritual guide through the different phases of one’s own existence.

Louder Than Goodbye by Allen Callaci will be available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Scribd, directly from the publisher's website, in several library systems, and through various electronic book distribution networks worldwide.
