Rochester, NY (Vocus) October 21, 2010
Three life-altering events have stirred the life of poet-author Ed Scutt since the year 2000. In his newly released book, Tough Millennium: Poems, he pens these experiences through poetry. He invites everyone to witness and feel it all in the poetic pieces of this anthology.
Through this collection, Scutt shares a poetic record of at least three major events that happened that had a huge impact on his life. Through poignant and often heart-wrenching verses, he tells about the cancers and eventual passing in 2008 of his dear wife Ellen. He also narrates the burning and rebuilding of their house in 2004-2005, and his own quadruple bypass in 2005. Employing different forms of poetry, be it rhyming, haiku, or free verse, Scutt effectively expresses his experiences—and the strong, overwhelming emotions that come with it—in a way that is sure to stir the readers’ hearts.
This book will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
