Expectations presents a bold new collection of poems from Gary Beck. His explorations of a ‘bankrupt civilization’ and society’s dependence on the cycle of consumerism make a reflective and at times uncomfortable read. Gary is unafraid to challenge us, our ingrained behaviours and our apathy as a society.
He conjures up the city effortlessly, the challenges young people face growing up in the modern world, bittersweet endings and new beginnings. This new collection examines the turbulence of life, in flight or otherwise.
Gary Beck lives in New York. His other works published by Wordcatcher Publishing include Blossoms of Decay and Blunt Force.
