The Space Between Us

A universal narrative on the significance of distance with love; remember to hold on to what you believe in. Ideal for those “whose love knows no bounds," The Space Between Us is full of profound anecdotes and messages, illustrating the courage and heartache of enduring physical distance.

The Space Between Us explores the trials of love and what it's like to live a life separated by distance from someone you care about. Its content is thoughtfully divided into five chapters, or phases, of the long-distance experience:

At First Glance
Living for Tomorrow
Lonely Nights
Grow Together/Grow Apart
When I See You.

A combination of poems and prose are sporadically connected with small graphics and maps to visualize the journey of physical distance. These poems serve as an adhesive between the reader and the ones they miss, the longing, the anticipation, and the eventual relief. Though both authors bring with them a unique perspective, the lens is singular; each is attuned to navigating this complex terrain.

Zack Grey is a 25-year-old writer from the Eastern US. He’s been reading voraciously his whole life and writing since he was 12. In the quiet of his room, the books he read at that young age changed him. The authors, unbeknownst to them, gave him an escape from the difficulties of his home life. He knew then that, one day, he would pay it forward. Zack seeks to make others feel understood, just like his favorite storytellers made him feel. When he’s not writing, he loves traveling, cinema, and music of all kinds.
