Publisher's Summary

Outside Gravity - Poems from a Personal Journey by Paul Burnore contains lyrical, crafted poems about loss, grief, and coming to terms with both death and life. These poems are seasoned by an international life and close observation about what really matters. In Outside Gravity, many poems grapple with the loss of a young son and the nearly crippling grief that followed. But this loss is balanced with broader reflections about death, along with a rebalancing of life containing love and the splendor of nature.

Outside Gravity ends with poems about human resolve and resilience, illustrated by the mythical character of Ulysses, who often lost to the gods and fate, but ultimately triumphed, and who is contemporary in his complexity and drive.

    "Beauty and heartbreak"
    What made the experience of listening to Outside Gravity the most enjoyable?

    I have read these beautiful and heartbreaking poems by Paul Burnore many times but not aloud, so they were only words in my head. Hearing them spoken in Joseph Bowen's distinctive, clear voice made the experience of this art even more engaging and powerful. I downloaded the audible version early one weekday morning thinking I would start listening on my way to work. I decided to take a quick listen. A full half hour later I had to stop and go to work. If you have ever lost someone or had sadness you didn't know what to do with, this book is medicine.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The characters are many. I like the voice of the author describing the way life and grief pull you in and down and then up and out again.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Bowen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I believe I have. I recognize the voice and wonder what else I've listened to with him. It very clear, rich reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I thought listening in sections was nice too. The poems each tell a story and they are tied together, so it works in pieces and as a whole.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is soft and tender and hard and rocky. A very soulful read! I highly recommend it to poet souls and to anyone who wants to experience engaging, thoughtful words about being a human on this planet, held by gravity. Paul has created a lovely work.
