The Quotient of My Self Divided by Myself (Paperback)
It's a rare treasure that a debut collection is published in a poet's ninth decade, but this is exactly what Miles Coon has achieved with The Quotient of My Self Divided by Myself. Once a successful attorney and industrialist, he turned to poetry over twenty years ago, dedicating himself to the art wholeheartedly ever since, using it to approach the unstated question famously posed by T.S. Eliot in "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" What is the meaning of my life? Cumulatively, these poems offer not just one but many answers to that question, telling the story of how to build an authentic self and grow into the person you're meant to be.
