Nolan Holloway’s Life Between the Words is a poetry collection that embodies the internal human struggle that lies within each one of us. The struggle with loss, change, and the grief that comes with it all. It is a work of redemption and one of finding the will to muster the strength to face the monumental obstacles as well as the day to day hindrances that can rock our lives. It is a brief collection of poems that is delivered in varying forms of line structure. It could be likened to an EKG monitor read out in that some of the lines are long, and some are fleeting. The voice that narrates throughout is one of malleable strength. Strong in places, but also not so strong that it overpowers and dominates. It is one that is a kind and quiet force.
You can feel Nolan Holloway’s soul in the pages of Life Between the Words, and as a reader you are almost able to touch the heartache, the pain, and the suffering, so nearly tangible. One of my favorite lines in the collection is short and perfectly put. “Thank you for answering my Why?” As the human society that we are, we forever ask questions; it is in our nature. Seldom are we given answers, but when we are, it is sometimes all that is necessary to keep ourselves moving forward. If you want to be able to touch another man’s soul, all you have to do is find this book and experience it for yourselves.
