Indelible Fingerprints

David A. Estringel's first published book Indelible Fingerprints from Alien Buddha Press contains prose and verse that are reflective of the significant parts of his life that have not only shaped him but left permanent marks (both good and bad). This published work contains 40 pieces of poetry and short fiction that have been previously published and reprinted in over 44 literary magazines and journals in the United States and abroad. Indelible Fingerprints offers 37 pieces of verse, ranging from free-verse to prose poetry to haiku, of various influences (Classical to dirty realism), as well as 3 short stories that encompass oeuvres of kitchen sink realism, speculative fiction, and the surreal.
