In The Smell of Campfire, KG Newman explores the intersection of fatherhood and sonhood in a quest to understand them both. Balancing hope and uncertainty, and time and memory, Newman crafts a submission for past flaws with a fearless confidence in the present. With the sublimity of fatherhood hanging around every poem like the smell of burnt wood, he takes the reader face-to-face with the pricelessness of being a parent, with moments of crisis, loss and crushing impermanence in contrast with the eternal resonance of patriarchal love.
Thank you to everyone who came out to Denver’s best independent book store, Tattered Cover Colfax in Denver, on Black Friday 11/25 for Newman’s book launch and author signing!!
