Editorial Reviews

Jack Stewart
In a country (and a world) of hyper-partisanship, America Vs. America does not coddle a cause, political party, ideology, or entity. That alone may cause some readers to dismiss the book, or deride it as indecisive. That was my initial impression until some poems forced me to step outside the partisan pigeonholes and look at the bigger picture. The author tends to lead the reader into a complex maze of irony until the pattern appears to suggest the bigger picture is so obvious I fail to see it.

His current book America vs. America is a poetry anthology for an era that needs courage and new hope to be prosperous. Stay tuned!

    This is not for everybody

    In a country (and a world) of hyper-partisanship, America Vs. America does not coddle a cause, political party, ideology, or entity. That alone may cause some readers to dismiss the book, or deride it as indecisive. That was my initial impression until some poems forced me to step outside the partisan pigeonholes and look at the bigger picture. The author tends to lead the reader into a complex maze of irony until the pattern appears to suggest the bigger picture is so obvious I fail to see it.

    The problem starts with me, and the solution is found in the same place.

    The poems are short, flow nicely, and has plenty of re-readability. Approaching it from different perspectives can change the tone of some poems, such as "Sounds of Fire", may have an interventionist feel to it, yet at the same time, leaves an open end to isolationist lamentation.

    With that said, this book is not for everybody, and may even anger some. However, if one does dare to take the partisan blinders off for a moment, it may at least entice the reader to question a position.
