Overview

A Nashville Woman & Other Sorrows is a book of poems about a country musician's doomed romance Which gradually takes the reader on a journey into the dark sequined heart of Nashville's music industry. This is poetry, but it's accessible in a way that some readers compare to '60s poet Rod McKuen's books, including McKuen's popular Stanyan Street & Other Sorrows.
The subjects of the poems include romance, rejection, death, modern muses, the art and craft of songwriting, pickup trucks, heroes, Taylor Swift, aging cowboys, and those artistic souls destroyed or nearly destroyed by the harsh reality of the music business.

Reviewer Lorelai Rivers gives the book a five star rating and says, "These poems ring true, as though author Dan Jewell has first-hand experience of the hope and heartbreak of being a working or non-working, musician/songwriter...These snippets of life, feelings, moments, scenes, and snapshots read to me like an epic song put together with the best book openings and chapter closings from every great novel never yet written." Reviewer Jack Magnus says, "Jewell's words are spare and eloquent, conveying worlds within a few well-placed words. While suffused with melancholy and loss, these poems also hint at redemption."

A Nashville Woman & Other Sorrows received the top award given in the Poetry: Love/Romance category in the 2015 international Readers Favorite contest.

About the Author

Award winning author and Nashville native Dan Jewell knows only three chords on his old Silvertone flattop, but he and his wife Joyce once cut demos of his songs in the famous Woodland Studio, where artists as diverse as Robert Plant and Mother Maybelle Carter recorded albums. Jewell and his wife live on five wooded acres near Nashville.

Jewell's award winning poetry collection, "A Nashville Woman and Other Sorrows," imaginatively reflects on his and others' experiences in Nashville and the music industry. Jewell's mystery novel "Blood Country," also set in Music City, received a silver medal in the international Readers Favorite contest.
