DISCOVERING DULUOZ is a collection of poetry based off several years worth of journals I wrote in the early 90’s. The poems cover the period where I was first exposed to the writings of Jack Kerouac as a teenager on a beach at Long Beach Island, and culminates with me hitchhiking (in true Kerouac fashion) from my home in New Jersey to his birthplace in Lowell, Massachusetts several years later.

 

Here’s what a few readers have said about the collection:

Discovering Duluoz is a collection of poems that yet, even imbued with melancholy, the pace and language of the poems create world’s that crackle with a vividness and imagery.
Though novels rather than Poetry are thought of as page-turners in the literary world, as I read these poems, I just wanted to keep going, slowly flipping the pages to see what would come next.
Truly a must have collection for poetry lovers.


Between the words and lines of each and every piece lied so much emotion. Beautiful words strung together in stanzas. As I spent my day flipping through the pages, I couldn’t put the book down. Each piece had me hooked from start to finish and a little sad at the very end as I knew it was over. I loved this book and can’t wait to read more from such a talented writer.

Poetry aficionado Michael David Saunders Hall had this to say about Discovering Duluoz…

 

After reading Discovering Duluoz, I sense an urgency within all of the insights and emotions simultaneously traveling in the same direction with no particular train of thought other than being a free soul. There is a definitive impulse of free association that becomes second nature to the prosody of your poetry and the poignancy of its meaning and message. Emily Dickinson once wrote, “Much madness is divinest sense, to a discerning eye.” As I read this collection, the way in which the words culminate by melding and meshing the mundane with the divine embodies this thought, creating a lonely fire of recollection utterly unique yet self- sustaining. It also reveals itself to be a progeny of Jack Kerouac’s influence and style. After a few reads, one might think that the author were him reincarnate, with perhaps even better poetic chops. But, though these musings carry the spirit of Kerouac along as a passenger, I know and realize that each of these pieces is a special spontaneous combustion of all the poetic inventions and dimensions that comprise the makings of him–mentally, physically and spiritually.
