A cold hard tale of living on the edge of insanity.
Beautiful Belligerence is a first person dark comedy based on real events. In 2013 four friends decide to plan a trip to a Kansas City Chiefs game. What ensued was a wild tale of experience, exuberance, excess, fate, and friendship played out across Kansas City, MO. Set to the backdrop of an emotional undoing, this first person narrative tells the story of a weekend where four friends left their inhibitions to the wind and decided to live free for the sake of their friendship.
Brent Beamer's writing is largely inspired by the wild country and characters of northeastern rural Missouri where he is from. Brent writes from a realist perspective with a flair for turning the ordinary into a mind road trip. He blends in a fair share of wit, and humor into his interpretations of modern life ethos. He counts among his primary influences to be John Steinbeck, Hunter S. Thompson, and Bob Dylan.
