The Slums of Nightfall
The night sweeps herself over us, as she paints the world black. She joins us, hand in hand, with the wrath of anxiety. She shrouds us with deep despair and in her wake comes the onslaught of depression. At this point we are all in need of a little comfort, perhaps companionship, a guide to trudge through the long nights with, to bring home the glory of a fresh sunrise.We cannot see the bountiful stars amidst the burning rays of the sun, they are invisible to desperately seeking eyes. But we do not forget they are there.We cannot witness a rainbow’s majestic arc during a midnight downpour, yet our eyes will never forget the fleeting beauty of prisms hanging in the air.I challenge you to step off your trusted track, leave the sunshine behind and walk the slums of nightfall. I dare you to offer up all your secrets to the effervescent moon, to find a safe haven in sunlight’s demise.Let this book be your hope amongst the hopeless. Allow the stanzas to fill you to the brim with possibility – you can and you will overcome your obstacles, you can and you will know peace and prosperity. You will be inspired, nourished and sustained by each and every verse you find within these pages.- L. J. Diaz

Reviewed by Erin Nicole Cochran for Readers' Favorite

"William Wright Jr.’s The Slums of Nightfall reads like a modern version of a collection of works by Edgar Allan Poe, but not by any means in a cheap, knockoff sort of way. This is brilliance in words. If there ever was a book that made me feel like Edgar Allan Poe was still alive and with us today, it would be this book. Perhaps the author is even the reincarnation, we’ll never know for sure, but it is wonderful to think about. Although the poetry is dark, one might think it would start to become repetitive, but each poem has a way of treating depressive situations and turning these into something that is not monotonous by any means, but is new again to us. The poems immerse you, cover you up like a blanket, nearly hypnotic."
