"Like his voice, Maciel's poems are raw yet velvety. He is brutally honest with himself. He dares to call himself out on his own bullshit and superficiality. Perhaps this is his redemption. Maciel's pages are rhythmic, steady, bleeding with excruciatingly sensual, delicate metaphors, and often torrid imagery. Like his music, he gives all of himself to the reader. It's not easy to turn your insides outside, but Maciel does so with sometimes shocking honesty."

"In Truth By Moonlight, Maciel's struggles from within a culture of alcohol and dilemmas with or without women, dominate from start to finish. A journey he insists on taking us on by way of the bottle. Maciel highlights man's universal fear of the moment... when the bottle goes empty, or when a woman has left a shared bed at 3am."

"Indie rock frontman, Gabriel Maciel of The Trims, dives into the literary world with a collection of poems, prose, and lyrics that takes you through sex and alcohol driven nights, wrapped in a heart shaped box. The musician/poet shows an unapologetic and graphic writing style. At times you'll feel intrusive to his most personal moments and at others, like you're having a drink right next to him. Either way, you'll be left feeling enthralled and inspired. Truth By Moonlight is a rare look into an artist's most personal inner workings and most vulnerable moments.
