Tender in the Age of Fury

Tender in the Age of Fury, Brandon Pitts, Mosaic Press

Tender in the Age of Fury is the second collection of poems by Seattle-based Canadian poet Brandon Pitts. In his new collection, Pitts “extends the themes of his initial offering Pressure to Sing (IOWI, 2012), and gives the reader a clearer understanding of the interconnected personal, theological and political themes of his work, uggesting a literary and cultural key to its full appreciation… Pitts returns the reader to the Hebrew/Christian/Islamic story of angels and men (and women) that is at the root of the modern consciousness, offering an immanent critique of its latest manifestations” (Terry Barker, from the Introduction).
