Life, Death, & the Faces and Places Between is a collection of 57 poems created over six years, between 1997 and 2003, expressed from the perspective of a man in his mid to late twenties. The poems examine life and death through various poetic styles and viewpoints, probing into territories, both familiar and uncommon. The book tackles a variety of subjects: From hate crimes to love ballads, from surviving cancer to surviving 9-11, from nature to the nature of man: all set against the backdrop of what it is to live in these unpredictable times. It´s a reflection of the world and encourages the reader to look beyond the surface for greater meaning. The poems were inspired by first hand experiences, observations of others, and thoughts that seemed to spill out upon the page. It is a fascinating and vulnerable exploration told through poetry.
