The State of Us is Larry Doherty's debut collection of poetry and it is eclectic, nuanced and powerful. It reflects his thoughts and feelings on life in these challenging, turbulent, watershed times. Larry's poetry offers glimpses of the more innocent domain of childhood as well as observations of the natural world and is interspersed with anecdotal and humourous poems. It also has rich veins of mindfulness, gratitude and personal reflection.
The voice of this poet is unique and clear and speaks to all generations at this surreal juncture in time. Readers will, we believe, find his poetry accessible, impactful, thought provoking and enjoyable.
