Pachamama Definitely Does Not Take Sides
A new book of poetry exploring the intricacies of our contract with existence, emotional healing and the paradoxes of the Israeli condition.
In Pachamama Doesn't Take Sides, there is a sense of urgency. Simkin's words describe with candour and compassion how childhood trauma persists in adulthood. He sketches with precision the process of our divorce from nature and our longing to return to the source. Along the way, he illuminates some of the paradoxes of the Israeli condition, and he does this with a biting sense of irony.
The collection is available as a free Ebook on Smashwords, and soon will be available online at Barnes & Noble, Apple Books and on Kobo.
Simkin explains his motives behind the collection: "Writing is meant to result in greater self-awareness - time will tell if it has worked. If not, at least I've blown off some steam and satisfied some of my ongoing need for recognition."
Born and educated in England, Michael Jack Simkin is a writer, musician and branding expert.
