Jesus Was a Homeboy
Kevin Carey

2016 • 80 pp. 6 x 9 1/4"
Poetry / Poetry - Death, Grief, Loss / Poetry - Inspirational & Religious

$16.00 Paperback, 978-1-933880-55-6

A poet’s look at the hard lessons of separation, of growing older, and of wanting the things that are beyond our reach

In Jesus was a Homeboy, Carey returns to the urban beach front, the dusty gymnasiums, the barrooms and the restaurants that have defined the chapters of his life. It’s an honest reflection of one man’s life with all its flaws and regrets, connecting the reader with the real drama of everyday life – aging, acknowledging past mistakes, and wishing things had been different but still being able to celebrate and hold onto those moments that make us appreciate what we have.
