While reading the poetry and micro-fiction of Sam Vaknin, one immediately runs into the questions we typically prefer not to ask. Sam's poems are full of whys; the whys of psychology, the whys of sociology, the whys of the physical world and the whys of the greater universe. Sam isn't afraid to ask why, or attempt to answer the question. And his answers are good ones, that leave us hungry for more.
Sam Vaknin is the author of Malignant Self Love - Narcissism Revisited and After the Rain - How the West Lost the East. He is a columnist for Central Europe Review, PopMatters, and eBookWeb, a United Press International (UPI) Senior Business Correspondent, and the editor of mental health and Central East Europe categories in The Open Directory and Suite101.
Until recently, he served as the Economic Advisor to the Government of Macedonia.
