Resisting the Masquerade rips away the plastic resin that slowly suffocates every soul that yearns to breathe free. Award-winning poet Ron Gavalik unleashes his raw literary style in these pages to challenge society’s obedience to the blood-soaked claws of the mob that tightens its grip around our throats. After a lifetime of conformity, truth has been buried deep in the dark recesses of the mind, where the subconscious conjures nightmares and weak hearts refuse to trudge. Armed only with fortitude and the mettle to withstand repressed violence, the reader embarks upon a perilous quest deep inside that madness, to find enlightenment, and to reclaim the years that remain.
"Reading Ron Gavalik's poetry is like finding a quiet seat next to one of Pittsburgh's rivers, Zen-like reflections in the midst of grit, car horns, blue collar bustle, and painted bridges."
-Alexis Thompson, Pittsburghmusician and activist
"Gavalik's molten words are an impassioned reflection of Pittsburgh's working class roots."
-Ron Sparks, author of ONI, the Satellite Earth Series
"Hot and gritty, this is poetry for the heart, mind and soul. Embrace it."
-Melanie Adkins, Book Reviewer, Have You Heard My Book Review
