I love poetry. We have talked over a few of the poems I have written. This month I want to read this book of poetry by Jewel, yes the singer. She wrote a book of poems called A Night Without Armor.
One of the most respected artists in popular music today, Jewel is much more than a music industry success with her debut album selling more than 10 million copies.
Before her gifted songwriting comes an even more individual art: Poetry.
Now available in paperback, A Night without Armor highlights the poetry of Jewel taken from her journals which are both intimate and inspiring, to be embraced and enjoyed.
Writing poems and keeping journals since childhood, Jewel has been searching for truth and meaning, turning to her words to record, to discover, and to reflect.
In A Night Without Armor, her first collection of poetry, Jewel explores the fire of first love, the lessons of betrayal, and the healing of intimacy. She delves into matters of the home, the comfort of family, the beauty of Alaska, and the dislocation of divorce.
Frank and honest, serious and suddenly playful, A Night Without Armor is a talented artist’s intimate portrait of what makes us uniquely human.
