“Children are haunted by their nightmares, adults by their dreams.”

Sea Sores is a biographical collection of creative non-fiction by the writer, N. J. Wood. Subdivided into eight bite-size chapters on love, work, loss, family, spiritual meaning, the impact of technology, and the psychological friction of 21st-century living. The concept of this work was to create a book describing my former life in Brighton and the vibrant nature of the city itself, through a hundred short poetic sketches.

For all the volume's sharp edges I tried to underpin it with an empowering truth; that hope and love are the driving agents of change in all our lives. They are the two meandering banks between which the fortunes of our lives course. Whatever the challenges we face, having hope and giving hope cost very little, it's living without such things which remains unaffordable, especially through these turbulent times.

A heartwarming worthwhile read

An insightful and unique collection of poetry. Showing vulnerability and deep introspection about some of his interactions through life. He observes beauty, and beauty in things you might not have found beautiful at first. Listening to his words with his soothing voice, I found myself almost in a dreamlike state. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to step out of novels and the rush of life, to slow down a bit and see the world with a different view. A pleasurable read, indeed
