About the Book
"Person, Place or Thing." is a collection of poems about nouns. Poems frenetic and studied. Poems that are PG-13 and sometimes a little bit traditional. Poems that explore themes of joy, dislocation and people passing by. Let the words burrow and fix.
Adam Bresson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and moved to Southern California in 1988, living in Los Angeles for the past 20 years. He appreciates the benefit of having spent time growing up on both coasts and that unique perspective is reflected in his writing--old and new, sun and snow, all seasons and always summer. Having written for over 25 years, he explores many themes including love, confusion, nature, history and cities. He released his first book of selected poems in February 2014 “Person, Place or Thing.” His writing has appeared in National Lampoon Magazine, InterBang, Poetic Diversity and several independent poetry collections. Adam Bresson lives in Los Angeles, CA with his wife and daughter where he works in computers, writes and participates in civic activism.
