A review of my new collection “As Folk Over Yonder” by sonja benskin mesher

As Folk Over Yonder

.as folk over yonder. paul brookes.

have said before how the forward of this book leaves me emotional before even starting on the verse. not many will write of simple kindnesses

“Time has not,

nor will not help this grief.”

 

i find an underlying sadness from small tales of everyday, fragile stories of vulnerability, humanity

a unique voice from a sharp intelligent ear, the words flow as ordinary, yet extraordinary in the telling

the truth told which many of us hear, it takes Paul to record them beautifully in this book

a book of triumph over the ordinary; raising his stories to a magic world with pith and accent

a black and white movie of current lives

i suggest it is read at least twice over

and kept to read some more

i have read it four times over, and the words remain fresh each time, a new nuance with each reading

a little delight in every corner

bravo Paul
