Portland, OR, May 05, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Unsolicited Press announces immediate availability of The Poet’s Garage by Terry Tierney, an author based in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Poet’s Garage is a provocative poetry collection enriched by deep images that refuse to remain static. Poems begin with epiphany-esque imagery only to morph into something radically new. Readers may begin a poem at Dairy Queen only to find themselves witnessing the implications of homelessness. Tierney weaves through poems with lucid metaphor, tinted lenses (which are not rose-colored), and painful memories made beautiful through language. The Poet’s Garage is an invaluable addition to the canon of California poetry.
Terry Tierney is a writer who hails from the Midwest, but has planted roots in the San Francisco Bay Area. After serving in the Seabees, he completed his BA and MA at Binghamton University; Tierney completed a PhD in Victorian Literature at Emory University. For years, he taught college composition and creative writing courses, and survived several Silicon Valley startups as a software engineer. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife Michaelyn Burnette, a Librarian from the University of California, their son, and their goofy Golden Retriever. Tierney’s work has appeared in countless publications. Lucky Ride (Unsolicited Press), an irreverent Vietnam-era road novel is set to release in 2022.
The Poet’s Garage (978-1-950730-41-4) is available as a paperback and ebook, and can be purchased from all major retailers. Ingram Book Group distributes the title to the market.
