Field Guide to the Human Condition
Adrian S. Potter, author
In Field Guide to the Human Condition, Adrian S. Potter has written a book of poems about how one rebuilds oneself after grief, heartbreak, and challenges. It focuses on the setbacks and struggles that mold a person into a different version of themselves than the one they once knew. It's about grappling with histories, both personal and collective. Potter uses hallmarks from modern life — pop music, discrimination, shifting identities, and toxic relationships — to construct a hall of mirrors, in which each viewpoint reflects a different possibility.
