In verse reminiscent of the work of bestselling author Tom Robbins and contemporary poet Dan Featherston, Larry McAlister delivers an eclectic mixture of poems that capture the complexity and wild diversity of human emotion. From My Veins celebrates both the simple and the intricate facets of life through a bold and pleasing mixture of sound and rhythm, tone and imagery. From the ebbs and flows of love to the visceral satisfaction of conquering a childhood bully, and from ruminations on the emotional lives of inanimate objects to meditations on identity, McAlister's verse crystallizes human experience in all its complicated glory. Voice and movement also play within McAlister's poems, creating an intriguing blend as perfect as any symphony. This style moves throughout the collection to provide a seamless narrative of the human experience. Filled with vivid language and images, From My Veins is a masterful compendium of how the soul and the heart communicate in intricate harmony.
