Blossoms of Decay
A poetry collection by

Gary Beck

For Immediate Release

Direct, cutting, and visceral. Gary Beck takes no prisoneers and writes in an uncompromising style. His subjects include politics, the state of America, and teenage bullying. Love or hate his views, you will certainly know where you stand. His style makes comulsive reading and you will move from poem to poem as if in a tunnel pursued by a runaway train. Be sure to jump clear so you can return to enjoy his writing more deeply. An established and prolific author, Gary has many more titles to come with Wordcatcher Publishing.

Beck writes passionately about his subject matter. He brings poverty, wealth and class
center stage. We are presented with inequities rooted in divisions of class. There is no hiding place, nor mixing of words nor compromise. – Poets Network and Exchange Magazine
