Mirrors and Portraits Is a Rugged Yet Etheral Collection of Verse

Share Article

Snapshots from a young man looking at his past with an unblinking eye.

Maverick filmmaker Jerry Williams provides these in Mirrors and Portraits (75 pages, $14.95), a rugged yet etheral collection of verse. Williams has many interests, but the one closest to his heart is macabre verse. Equal parts Poe, Bukowski, and the love of life burns and infuses in his first work of verse.

Mirrors and Portraits runs the gamut from portraits of "Divinity Hobos" to the mock epic of "The Goblin King," which is poetry as performance theater. Each poem is a sign post from the angry ones of the gen X generations. Pained, driven, yet hopeful of the new day. Mirrors and Portraits is an intense work for the reader who wants coffee stains and smoke burned into their poetry.

Jerry Williams is a writer, film director, and main creative force behind goatboyfilms, a zero budget film company based in Kentucky. His first feature film Purvos is being picked up for world wide distribution and his second feature film Zeppo has cult icons Debbie Rochon, Lloyd Kaufman, and Conrad Brooks in this surreal comedy.
