Garret Keizer's award-winning collection of poetry
I'm very pleased to announce that award-winning Vermont author, Garret Keizer, chose to use one of my photos for the cover of his upcoming book of poetry, The World Pushes Back.
This collection won the 2018 X. J. Kennedy Poetry Prize and will be available toward the end of March. I had the privilege of seeing an advance copy, and the writing is unsurprisingly superb. These are the type of poems that only someone rooted deeply in experiencing life - truly dissecting what it means to be a human being - could pen. They took me through the entire spectrum of emotions, eliciting laughter and tears, and left me feeling both satisfied and slightly haunted, forced to confront head-on all it means to exist in this world.
I hope anyone interested in reading this truly fine collection, a book you can pick up for few minutes once a day or sit and read cover-to-cover, will place an order. I can guarantee you will be well rewarded. You can find The World Pushes Back on Amazon here.
