In Layman Terms
by Steven Manchester
"In Layman Terms is a fascinating book of poetry. It successfully represents something that is woefully underrepresented these days: the loving emotions of the male. With all the aggression and anger depicted in books, on television, and in films, we tend to forget that it is love that really drives us as human beings. In Layman Terms is an intimate examination of this love, and is a fantastic read. Steve Manchester has a style that is eminently enjoyable, and carries the reader gently through an exploration of feelings and family ties. You will find yourself gliding through the collection, and at its conclusion feel that you have read something both refreshing and meaningful."
