Reading is Not Always a Pleasant Escape from Reality

Starve the Vulture: A Memoir by Jason Carney

This book was difficult to read. The story was horrific. I’m glad he did not go into more detail, as it became clear the specifics of his personal living nightmare. Poetry is tasked with much to nurture and repair. I’m not sorry I read it, a story of tremendous courage and creativity in overcoming. ( )
