Heartbreak ridgePoems by Bill Nevins
Edited by Pia Gallegos
Available at Amazon and CreateSpace for $10.95.
Also available at Bookworks ABQ  and Cafe Bella Coffee and other Swimming with Elephants events.

“Heartbreak Ridge is a campfire of the resistance, a place where all kinds of poems-from jeremiads, scourgings, and passionate rants to absolutely beautiful works of love and loss-gather between its covers. Bill Nevins is a truth-teller,and what he has to tell us about the last half century of American life and politics is a matter of highly charged poetic urgency.”

~Terence Winch, author of Boy Drinkers,

“When New York Was Irish” and many other works of poetry, music and fiction.
