Dean’s 20/10 visions break bold, clever, sarcastic, cynical, brutally honest, bare faced, bare-soul, telling off, alone, deeply passionate & extremely vivid visually.
The poetry left me pensive, painted into a corner, or suddenly wrapped with a loving arm (crying out loud) , or dropped into a comedy (laughing out loud).
As I read, Dean’s words kept coming at me, relentlessly, with increasing speed. I couldn’t put the book down; I read poems to anyone who would listen.
Dean’s style is rebellious. Capitals, punctuation, starts, ends and rhymes are where he wants them to be. His consummate skill works it all beautifully. So just read on without expecting a period at the end
When I reached the end, I began reading the book from back to front.
Then I was at the beginning again.
I very recently bought my first Dean J. Baker book for Kindle, Poetry & How It Gets That Way. I own 4 more of Dean’s titles, all in paperback.
In my humble opinion, Dean J. Baker is a writer most worth reading.
Dean is a prolific writer, and all of his many books are available on Amazon in EBook and/or Paperback. He even has his own Amazon page.
