Slap Shot Silences

Slap Shot Silences

by David Jo Brown

David Jo Brown's life was short — he died before he was forty after a long illness. All the while he could write, he did, never making the reader aware of his own suffering, but, as a pacifist and a firm believer in the politics of Christianity, expressing his concern for life, and for other people, especially fellow sufferers.

These poems are as funny as they are achingly honest, and this short collection is a tribute to a man who in spite of everything never lost his sense of humour, or his sense of privilege at having had life.
