New in new dust jacket. 109 p. Postcards is a journey of discovery to places and cultures most of us want to explore. The poetry is profound, entertaining, humorous. In language and rhythm, each postcard becomes a poetic canvas. The wash, all vibrant landscapes, ethereal beauty, ocean moods, feasts and fauna, soon morph into stunning impressions of places, customs and characters in comical scenes from real life. These poems are mesmeric. Their mosaic images guide us through the spheres and atmospheres of the past and present. Serene and wild, historical and political, we roam their landscapes like Hardy, sail their oceans like Hemmingway, talk people, politics, religion and poverty like Joyce and Yeats. From Ireland, Europe, South America this book thrills, enlightens, challenges perceptions and soars in the senses. Strider Marcus Jones Poet, Hinkley, Liecestershire, England "Postcards" by Ben Nuttall-Smith showcases once again, what an incredible poet he is. Within this, his 6th, literary offering, I was captivated as I travelled through the countries of Ireland, England, Europe, Hawaii, South America, and many more, all from the comfort of my lounge chair. Nuttall-Smith's ability to transpose his visions into poetry is breathtaking indeed and epitomizes the art of great writing. You will find yourself compelled to read his addictive masterpieces again and again. David J. Delaney-Poet, Cairns, Queensland, Australia "Postcards", a perfect title, for this poetic travelogue from Haiku to prose poems. Ben Nuttall-Smith, a cheerful guide, describes with a full painter s palette: Ireland to Brazil, Italy to Sunshine Coast, BC and more! He shares his honest opinions of injustices, but is avid about the memorable rewards offered by each country as centuries of arts & crafts, music & museums, churches & ruins, seascapes & weather reports, fragrant menus & local characters are shared. Much historical data slides into your memories, urging you also to experience such places. Enjoy his wise assessments and witty asides. Bernice Lever, Poet, Bowen Island, BC Canada
