Book Description

Poetry. "The familiar streets and landmarks throughout Tim Nolan's THE SOUND OF IT will resonate with Minneapolis natives, and even some New Yorkers. The sounds of Nolan's poems cover a full octave—from childhood to "Almost Fifty," Diamond Lake Road to Palestine, brussels sprouts to Holy Thursday. Nolan harmonizes the ordinary morsels of life with the profound in such a way as to awaken the reader to a conscious living in the moment. He focuses on past and future as inseparably flowing elements of the present. Within this overture of poems, "the voice you hear is generous and expansive like Whitman's, at home in the 'easy suit' of the body and yet always surprised to be part of the here and now" (Joyce Sutphen). Nolan's voice embodies his longing to offer "something lasting that might be repeated and would carry a life of its own."—Minnesota Literature
