Overview

Excerpts From My Soul...Read Without Prejudice stretches the boundaries of literature by taking a look at the world through the use of compelling prose poetry, vignettes, and comical introspections about the world's complexities.

The world as we know it has changed, and Jones' intent is to massage the mind, giving the world a surreal, yet realistic slice of what he views as necessary conversation which is isolated by the mainstream media. The goal is to break bread on less excitable subject matter which many refuse to discuss and print because of a fear of censorship.

In his spectacular second book of poetry, Nathan Jones blends the prickly, happy, poignant, and thrilling in such a moving way, but it's at the point of the idiom - the depth of honesty - Jones' perspective constantly broadens itself in striking ways. Though these poems are rangy, Jones nonetheless keeps his reader ensconced within the profundity of his soul - without hesitation, reservation, or excuse for his process of definition.

Meet the Author

Nathan Anthony Jones hails from the Jazz capital, a.k.a., The Big Easy. He exited his mother's womb making waves the year Jimi freaked Woodstock over 4 decades ago. He is a 7th Ward Bayou Bourbon Street Boogieing Baby born bubbly and bouncing to the African spiritual beats of the bamboulas and banzas of the Congo Square in New Orleans.

Nathan's poetry is cayenne pepper; spicy and feisty, political and social, reflective and eclectic and fulfilling like a hot bowl of gumbo and rice and a jar of homemade lemonade on a humid Southern summer afternoon. Raised in Oakland, he is a poet, teacher, publisher and author of several books: Revolutionary Erotica & Other Poems, Black Man in Europe: Micro Volume, Black Man in Europe: The Novel, and Excerpts From My Soul...Read Without Prejudice.
