Book Spotlight: To Drown A Man

I have a spotlight for you today, on the poetry collection To Drown a Man by Tyler James Russell. Enjoy.

To Drown a Man by Tyler James Russell

To Drown a Man is a sincere, plainspoken collection about fear, vulnerability, and radical honesty. At once delicate and visceral, the poems chronicle the long gauntlet from a life of secrets to a life of intimacy. Exploring the meaning of redemption and shame as related to the personal, the marital, and the spiritual, these poems read like chunks of ore being burned of their dross.

To Drown a Man is available at:
