THE CONDITIONS WE LIVE tackles life’s turbulence unapologetically
Portland, Oregon— June 25, 2019 — Unsolicited Press announced the immediate availability of THE CONDITIONS WE LIVE (978-1-950730-01-8) by E.A. Johnson. The Conditions We Live is a poetry collection the incites emotion and depicts life as it truly is: messy, beautiful, uplifting, and soul crushing. Johnson’s debut collection follows a loose narrative of growing up in modern society where we are constantly torn between our better and baser natures, how to live in an increasingly fractured world, and how to find solace in the moments. When the big picture looks bleak, the moment holds a transcendent beauty nonetheless.
E.A. Johnson can often be found chasing after one of those diabolically bipedal entities we often refer to with the innocuous moniker of “Toddler” or waking in the wee hours of the morning to quiet the nightly cries of the littlest member of my family. Otherwise, he’s directing a play, correcting papers, planning lessons, climbing trees, remodeling my home in the woods, reading in the groggy wastes of the middle of the night (since those aforementioned entities don’t sleep), or drinking black dark roast (or something with a little more bite). Oh yeah, sometimes he even gets a little writing in there too. You can find some of his poetry in The Chaffey Review (Spring 2010), The Battered Suitcase (Winter 2010), and Writing Tomorrow (February 2012).
THE CONDITIONS WE LIVE by E.A. Johnson is available wherever books are sold and directly from the publisher at www.unsolicitedpress.com.
