About Lee Isserow

Lee Isserow is an award-winning comedy writer and filmmaker, with over fifteen years spent trawling the back streets and dark alleys of the entertainment industry.

He's pretty sure he has some traits of autism, because he's been constantly working and obscenely prolific for the entire duration, writing over a hundred screenplays, many of which he's adapting into forthcoming books, because very few people are willing to turn them into movies. For now.

He lives in Liverpool, England because he accidentally bought a house there. He's not quite sure how that happened - but assumes part of that is because he used to drink a lot.

Review by: Mike White on May 9, 2016 :
This poem is extremely well-written, and it does address a lot of the very real issues associated with aging. I would really love to see more positive portrayals of living a long time, but as a negative portrayal, this one is at least skillfully done. The poem has structure without falling into the 'sing-song' rhythm of a lot of poems. This is a poem that I would recommend.

A scary tale about a sad old man, perhaps the last man alive ... told in a poem.

Review by: Bethany Ebert on Jan. 8, 2016 :
I liked the idea behind this, but would have liked it better if it wasn't trying so hard to be poetry. It felt like a few phrases were just crammed in to sound good. I think the hopeless, sad feeling would have been better reflected in fiction rather than poetry. It's a good start, though, and I look forward to seeing what this author will come up with next.
