The Road Home

from 8.99

A book of many ages bridged simultaneously, The Road Home is poetry that is close to the heart and the mind. With pristine vignettes of history, to the reactionary movements of the present, Sloan takes you by the hand towards your favorite place, even if it isn't yours.

Reviews:

Ben Sloan speaks and observes with the nuanced gravitas of earned wisdom. He addresses the sometimes surreal nature of the ordinary, as well as our need to laugh at ourselves once in a while. His poems are like small divinely catered treats that burst open when least expected to startle and delight one's palette. 

—John Michael Flynn, author of Restless Vanishings
