Weaned on War

0 out of 5


Eugene Platt’s volume of Collected Poems provides the reader with an eloquent
distillation of five decades of humor, heartache, history, and love. Whether
writing about the simple pleasure of eating a Folly Beach hotdog or the
profound permutations of the passage of time, Platt brings his world—and all
of our worlds—alive.
— Wesley Moore, English teacher (retired), Porter Gaud School;
author, Today, Oh Boy
