Ed George’s debut collection of poetry was written over a period of thirty years. His simple, sensual style captures the search for life’s meaning, and the collection’s power comes from “the word not said.” A music producer and songwriter, his background is readily apparent in the structure of these poems. Here he explores the impact of friends, family, love, and war, and interweaves the influences of popular culture on modern life. His voice is Southern, but with the irony of a generation whose idealism sometimes turned to disillusionment and which now reflects with hard-earned wisdom on the past. George is a Montgomery, Alabama, attorney, and education consultant who likes to try his hand at poetry and songwriting when he’s not playing softball or tennis.
