A Place In Time
by David Kherdian
As David effortlessly moves between prose and poetry, he creates a poetic memoir like no other. He starts at the edge of town, on the shores of Lake Michigan and slowly brings us to the heart of Racine. Once we've reached Racine's downtown, David takes a deep dive into the most overlooked aspect of any factory town - the people who call it home. His friends, his struggling parents, the town drunk--David pays loving homage to all of them. And in doing so, he gives us a key to unlock our own memories that we may have been on the verge of forgetting. Even though this is David's memoir, his flowing verses give us the ability to explore our own thoughts that we ourselves believe to be long gone.
