The Book of Jacob
The world of poetry can be quite pretentious. Many times, we will read prose from writers who would like us to believe they are not flawed. They talk to us about subjects as if they've mastered them all. Often, it actually seems some poets condescendingly "talk at" their audience instead of "talking to" us. "The Book of Jacob" does not fit that mold. This collection is a journey similar to what many of us have experienced in our lives. Sadness is in an emotionally epic game of tug of war with happiness. Just when we think we've found love, we discover we've found heartache. When we reach points of being ready to give up, a higher power tells us why we shouldn't. We are all perfectly imperfect and accepting that is what "The Book of Jacob" is all about.
