The heart and soul of the modern young adult is explored in this collection of poems and short prose. Covering topics such as depression, heartbreak, love, laughter, and the rest of the emotions felt on a regular basis by a 20-something living in today's world, it reveals a unique perception of those all-too-common experiences. Bryant Snow writes about everything in his life: what he sees, how he feels, and why things are the way they are. He explores relationships both lost and found, cross-country travel, experiencing nature, and trying to fall asleep at night. To him, people in their 20s are a culture of young adults like there's never been before. In his debut literary work, he takes everything life throws at him and turns it into a song.

About the Author

Bryant Snow was born in Ohio and lived most of his life there. His interest in reading was sparked by the Dr. Seuss monthly subscription his mother set up for him as a child. He started out creating comics and stories, and as he grew into a young adult moved toward poetry and real-world-inspired stories. When he's not writing, he spends his days with family and friends, talking to everyone he meets and making people smile. He loves traveling and with family scattered throughout Ohio and beyond, he gets to do a lot of it.Inspiration for his work comes from Joyce, Bukowski, the Beats, Rowell, Canty, Hemingway, and David Foster Wallace.
