Along with his songs and prose, Nathan Brown has written at least one peom every day for over 20 years now. And from that practice comes this new collection in which each poem deals chronoligically with every year of our lives, from ages of 0 to 100. In one, he tells the story of an 8 year old girl attempting to cross the border into the U.S. with her older brother. Further in, he works throught themental gyrations of a 39 year old man and a woman wo is 61 falling in love at a readin in a bookstore. As a whole, these poems offer a stark sensitivity to all the stages, transitions, and graduations of life, while also marking a willingness to put an hones, sometimes even cold and hard, magnifying glass up to the struggles of the soul.
