Storytelling is a well-loved and well-preserved tradition and it is easy to see why. Stories let people share experiences, teach life lessons and encourage others. There are different ways to tell a story and for debut author M. L. Tuck, he uses poetry. “Project Self,” his new book of poems, is an invitation to look at life, the world and themselves in brilliant new light.

“Project Self” brings together a collection of original poems and haikus written over a period of 10 years. Here, Tuck reveals his growth both as a person and as an artist and demonstrates his gift in articulating the depths of human emotion. As the witty, poignant and thoroughly engaging narrator, he takes readers on a journey through the highs and lows of love and those moments of darkness and light that make life more meaningful. His poems, personally valuable and universally relevant, examine a dazzling range of subjects and yet his unique poetic voice makes each one immediate and emotionally accessible.

“This is a work that sheds light on the dark while simultaneously shading the well-lit. ‘Project Self’ is a break from the everyday grind of life. It is a fresh breath for both imagination and emotion,” Tuck says.

An unforgettable odyssey for the heart, soul and senses, “Project Self” is both a beautifully told story of life and a testament to the power of poetry to uplift, entertain and transform.

This book will be featured at the 2014 London Book Fair in London, England, on April 8 – 10, 2014. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
