Published by iUniverseBooks
Poet Jess Strauss is 95 and doesn’t know how many days, months or years are in store for him. Sitting back and waiting for the inevitable to arrive is not his way of life. As the title of the book says, Strauss is too old to be concerned with being old. The goal is to survive and be active in the remaining years. In this collection, he blends memory and vision to share experiences with his resilient attitude toward life and longevity. The poems are real, sincere, inspiring, and thought provoking. In compassionate verse, Strauss offers his poetic viewpoints on poverty, disability, loneliness, war, and the ironies of life. There’s romance, love, stories, friendship, family values, and ironic laughter represented page after page.
