Raison ̕d être, IBook - 2014
"Some moments in life are meant to be savored, enjoyed through slow, deliberate consumption. But too often, such moments are met instead with overeagerness and excessive hunger, which threaten to devour the context of the moment before its content is even partially digested. For this reason, Bradley James requests that you take your time and be patient with Raison ̕d être. It should be read only a few pages at a time, in a quiet place where you can thoroughly consider the deep, sometimes dark mental images and prodding questions that will inevitably pervade your thoughts and tempt you to turn just one more page - even though that's exactly what you've been told not to do. Comprised of two separate volumes, Raison ̕d être was described by Kirkus Independent Reviews as "an epic, multipart poetry cycle about the nature of life and the transience of relationships" and "a free-form, often thought-provoking verse confessional in the tradition of Leaves of Grass." Both standing alone and taken together with the second book in the collection, Raison ̕d être, Volume I deeply explores the author's thoughts and philosophies on life, death, spirituality, and the essence of what makes human life so precious and unique"--Amazon.com.
