New Gabriola Publisher launches first book! Night Forest Press is pleased to announce the publication of its first title. Sun and The Son is jimy dawn’s debut poetry collection. It has been described by poet and author Roger Farr as an “alchemical conversion of grief into life”.
The author describes the context in his Preface: “In late August 2018 my youngest son took his life. I had been writing and exploring poetry before that date, but everything changed after ‘the event’. Hence the decision to separate this collection into Part I and Part II - Sun and The Son.” Farr continues, “jimy dawn demonstrates something we always knew about language. He reminds us that, Children sleep. Rivers send us home. Stories never end.”
