Neck Pain is a collection of stories that reminds us rock bottom is a place worth visiting.

Dark yet hilarious, this uncompromising debut from Matt Gibson is a fine blend of thinking and drinking, degeneracy and philosophy, a twisted journey from the barstool to the grave.

Through his witty and irreverent prose, Matt Gibson shares his insights on the human condition, exploring themes such as addiction, mental health, and mortality.

Despite the weighty subject matter, Neck Pain is a refreshingly funny and engaging read. The author's self-deprecating humor and irreverent tone infuse the stories with a sense of lightness and humor, even in the darkest moments. This is a book that will make you laugh out loud one minute and feel a lump in your throat the next.
