Overview

PUBLISHED BY GRACE NOTES BOOKS

This is the 1st collection in book form from award-winning & celebrated poet, Steven M. Grant.
Grant describes himself as "A Southern California boy lost in Manhattan" and much of his work mirrors this description at every turn; reminiscent of both the pulsing grit of Gotham and the crashing of Pacific waves against a timeless mountainside.
With the squalor of the city looming; his words make the heart ache for the loneliness and the stench, the noise and the chaos, and elevate these offenses into something wholly new and undeniably beautiful.

OKAY, BUT WHAT ARE THE REVIEWER'S SAYING?

"Grant's poems are city-tough and road-warrior-conditioned, with language as gritty and rough as you'll find in a city street . You can sense the metallic taste and smells and feel the city seep under your fingernails and work its way into your pores. You read these poems, and you know you're never truly free of the city, and you don't want to be." -Glynn Young, Award-winning speechwriter & contributing editor for The High Calling
"The man writes with the slick of a seasoned urbanite that has not lost his predilection for looking in from the outside. He voyeurs you into the changing rooms and sweat-pits of what it means to be significant and ordinary, to be exceptional and irrelevant." - Renée Sigel, Boababpapers
