“Author Amber Jerome~Norrgard explores the ending and beginning of love in her third poetry collection, 11:59 p.m.” (description from Goodreads)
*This is a review of an ARC received from the author for an honest review
Norrgard writes in many different disciplines. Whether it’s erotica, short stories that pack a emotional punch, her non-fiction, or her poetry, readers are bound to leave satisfied. With her newest collection, 11:59 p.m., Norrgard delivers.
This collection is filled with very personal, touching verse. The voice that I’ve enjoyed in the poet’s past works shines through yet again as we get a glimpse into what makes Norrgard tick.
The opening poem, which is titled the same as the collection, is one of my favorites. I’ve often thought about the moment one day turns into another and this poem does just that. Some other poems that stuck out are Naivety, Come Back, and The search for the eyes of home.
I think it’d be a good, short collection to start with for those wanting to get into Norrgard’s poetic works.
