Book of poems by a New Jersey writer. Here's a description:
In BJ Ward's Landing in New Jersey with Soft Hands, each poem is a journey filled with discovery as we travel roads of America and the heart, trusting always Ward's steady hand upon the wheel. The poems are richly diverse, from 'The Dying of the Light,' with its insistent pathos, or the wry premise of 'Shakespeare as a Waiter,' and the generous elegance of 'Dancing with the Teacher.' What unites this stunning debut is Ward's consistent depiction of a world filled with the anguish and promise of 'something here, something now' that sweet something that won't grasp you or be grasped.
