Euphoric Wonderland by Ryan M. Becker
A deft amalgamation of spoken word, rhythmic and clever poetry, word play, light-shining on darker sides, truth to power, and a marvelous jab at certain celebrities is what I would laud Euphoric Wonderland to be. The author pulls no punches while pushing a few buttons and envelopes along the psychedelic journey he enjoins us; and to which we are instantly transfixed! This terrific literary effort is surreal in its realism and at times sarcastic with pinpoint accuracy. It is brash and uncompromising in how it tackles life issues and examines matters from an insightful and clearly personally-lived perspective. A Wonderland that Alice herself would find wondrous, and a quick read for curious minds and those who just might be struggling through specific mental health related challenges of their own.

It is said that the best comedians are borne from tragedy, either at home or growing up in an outside world fraught with challenges and various personal demons. The same holds true for the literary realm.
Ryan M. Becker combines his acerbic wit and Sahara-dry sense of humor to tell poetic stories that ring true based on events that molded his life. What we as the readers fully sense throughout his seminal effort, Euphoric Wonderland, is that his well-placed sarcasm is truly the product of his life lived to date.
In a perfect blend of the harder times, particularly the doctor-induced chemical cocktails, one experiencing such issues knows that he is reaching out to them; throwing a lifeline which will hopefully serve to put a smile on a stranger’s face just long enough to take a break from their rigorous and all too often painfully–affected daily lives.
With pathos, simpatico, powerful innuendo and an unabashed straight forward style, Ryan hits a home run with the bases loaded.
