Heroin, Heartbreak, and Hard Liquor. These are just a few of the elements at play in Willis Gordon's second collection "The Empty Boulevards". Told in beautifully compact style, Gordon tells the stories of men and women on the fringes of society. Raising the issues of the modern servicemen's struggle, Death, Addiction, Manhood, Fathers and Sons, Sex, and Lost Love, he brilliantly weaves a true journey into the dark heart of America's overlooked and unlucky. His tough and meaningful prose cuts deep into the matters at hand, reminiscent of post-modern classics with a more ragged and worldly flair. With a unique style and a keen eye for description, "The Empty Boulevards" is an enthralling account of our modern society and the high cost of low living. In this radiant sophomore effort, Gordon proves that he is truly a voice for our time.
