Nolan Allan's "mountain dew" is a 21 part fever dream, a cartography of the modern South in which familiar landmarks, both concrete and conceptual, become estranged, as unnavigable and alien as the personal crises that spurred the book's creation. Surveying the contrasting and often contradictory terrain, Allan draws new connections between image and object, like a conspiracy theorist stringing together pins on a cork board. 

With influences from Dean Young, Ocean Vuong, and Malcom de Chazal, Allan presents a perspective indebted to his Appalachian roots, where the relics of mass culture are reclaimed and wrested from their capitalistic origins, taking on a newfound mysticism in defiance of the systems that birthed them.
