I don't have time for anything but the truth.
Tigard, OR (Vocus) October 30, 2010
In a book released through Xlibris, author Keith Rothschild shares his inspiring and oftentimes humorous life. Guns and Gerber Daisies presents poems of rhyme and rhythm that capture the most memorable events in his life, from daily routines to death of loved ones.
In an anthology that is both poetic and autobiographical, Rothschild reflects on his life, including the eight years he lived in the Northwest countryside, where he commuted on rural roads two hours a day; the saddening death of his surgeon brother at the age of thirty-six; and the untimely passing of his twenty-six-year-old daughter, who became his muse. The knowledge and experience he earned throughout the years allowed him to pen down over fifty poems that are inspiring and entertaining. The “Ladydog” is a nostalgic poem that relives the tender memories he shared with his deceased dog. “Christmas Coffee” is one of the many poignantly written poems the author shares as a tribute to his loving and smart daughter. The poem “Jackie” paints the rewarding life he has with his wife and soul mate, while “Senior Moment 2” follows the whining of a sixty-five-year-old man.
Through powerful words written in rhythmic style, this release will take readers on an unforgettable journey through life’s bitter and sweet moments. Guns and Gerber Daisies will make one contemplate on rather forgotten memories and ultimately celebrate the beauty that life perpetually offers with its fascinating poems.
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.
