A poetry collection by
For Immediate Release
Forceful and pacy, Blunt Force attacks large, complex issues, growing in anger and momentum as it progresses.
In his new work, Gary Beck takes aim at capitalist greed, corporate ruthlessness, and the decay of the American dream. His anger at the morality and hypocrisy of war, simmers under the surface of his poetry, the broken system it perpetuates and the abandonment of the American people by their leaders.
Clear and punchy, it is now without a more thoughtful look at the struggles of Nature against man, a war of another kind. Blunt Force is one man’s protest and makes for a compelling read.
Blunt Force is a 108 page poetry collection in paperback with a retail price of $10.99. ISBN 1912056364 and also in a Kindle version for $5.99. Published through Wordcatcher Publishing. Available now through all major retailers. For information or to request a review copy, contact:
