Review of Book of Pieces (Robert Roth). George Spencer

This is a book of many things as its title, Book of Pieces, suggests. It is a wonderful combination of literary forms, part diary, part poem, part detailed observations, part self-laceration, part hosannas and much more.  The subject matter, equally protean, is daily life in all its physical, emotional, and spiritual manifestations. It is all-encompassing realism that slowly enfolds the reader in its honesty, simultaneously … Continúa leyendo Review of Book of Pieces (Robert Roth). George Spencer
