BEFORE DREAMING

BEFORE COVER SINGLE xBudding Branch Books has recently published my new book of poems, BEFORE DREAMING.  The publication announcement described the work:

“BEFORE DREAMING allows us to enter a personal world that is at once accessible and layered with meaning.  Varied in tone, from deeply moving to light-hearted, the work shows a keen sense of structure and rhythm, a testament to a strong poetic style rooted in experience.”

The book is available at BROADWAY BOOKS (broadwaybooks.net), POWELLS (powells.com) and CANNON BEACH BOOKS.  Please search Arn Strasser or Before Dreaming.  Please visit
