Book Title:

Black Snow

Author:

Bill Garten

About The Book:
Bill Garten’s first book of poetry, Black Snow, is a book rich with imagery. As a poet, Bill is searching and reaching to tell you as a reader a new way to look at the world and not to take each day for granted. This book is full of clear, concise poems that share a very confessional style like we have seen in Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and Weldon Kees. There is a philosophical river running through Bill Garten’s writing and you will be wishing you had a travel guide once you hit the rapid white waters of these poems.

Book Title:

Red Rain

Author:

Bill Garten

About The Book:
Bill Garten’s second book of poetry Red Rain, is really a continuation of Black Snow, his first book of poetry. Rich with images and thought provoking twists and turns, the reader will see how Bill is on a journey and he seems to be saying, “Come along with me” and this is where he takes you, to this foreign country of himself with its own special yet clear language. Like all his poems, Bill Garten can be understood through his poems and when you read them it is as if he is holding up a mirror, looking in it himself, and then he asks you to look in the same mirror with him simultaneously. The style of this book reminds us of other poets like James Tate and Donald Justice.

Book Title:

Eventually

Author:

Bill Garten

About The Book:
Bill Garten’s third book of poetry, Eventually, was written while in the Caribbean and in the North Carolina mountains. These poems deal with relationships beginning and ending as well as memories and philosophy weaving their threads throughout each poem. Bill Garten uses concrete imagery and daily observations in a style similiar to Billy Collins, Stephen Dunn and Charles Bukowski. This third book is intensely laced with humor and you won’t be disappointed once you start reading.

Book Title:

Symptoms

Author:

Bill Garten

About The Book:
“Symptoms” is Bill Garten’s 4th book of poetry and through his vivid images and confessional style his latest book explores not only why we are here, but how we have come to various points in our lives and finally how we have to accept them. Bill Garten is asking questions not only about his life, but the lives of others around him. The confessional style of this book demonstrates how the author is not afraid to hide and literally is standing naked in front of his audience. Bill is more or less saying “this is who I am” – without any false walls or pretenses.
