Fox — Time Bomb

Time Bomb
By Richard H. Fox

“It’s official—I need a phrase that goes beyond ‘brilliant genius’ to describe Richard Fox and Time Bomb, his new collection of poetry. From a letter John Lennon sends to his son Sean’s teacher explaining why he’ll be out that day, to hippies, beats, Romeo & Juliet at Auschwitz, a lover named Madeleine, and Mrs. Noah’s Bitch, this book is all over the place!

The stakes couldn’t be higher as we journey with him through his battle with cancer, so elegantly described in stark, heart rendering detail that you simply can’t stop reading. With grace, courage, and humor, Time Bomb will move you, upset you, frighten you and inspire you. One of the year’s best. By far.” – Robin Stratton, author of Of Zen and Men and In His Genes, editor of Boston Literary Magazine
