S. J. White's Thoughts and Obsessions is a masterful tour de force of poetic writing that covers both the personal and the universal truths of the human condition. In Bored, White concisely touches on the mundanity of our daily existence in a way rarely seen with other contemporary poets, whilst still retaining an element of light humour. And in Thank You My Friend, White's neoteric exploration of the importance of our closest friendships is most deftly, and beautifully conveyed. Other poems in the collection range in scope from hope, faith, love, personal identity, through to our closest relationships and romance.
About the Author
S. J. White grew up in the suburbs of Dublin in an impoverished part of Dun-Laoghaire. A student who studied Dramatic Arts in the Dublin region for several years, it was always his dream to be a published author. White had a great difficulty learning English as a child as he is dyslexic. As a child he wrote a small book, Locked Out, which won an award from the Department of Education. Although it was never published, he felt that this was the first step for him.
