By Richard Bronson

Richard Bronson’s Passage is a paean to his parents and the art of doctoring, as he follows his father into the profession. We watch as he trains as a student, then evolves into a physician in his own right. The reader is offered a glimpse of a man attuned to the poignancy of loss….Despite its gravitas, Passage is not without humor… Bronson is firmly in command of language and narrative throughout this book, as he masterfully unreels several lives, not the least of which, his own. –Ed Stever, Suffolk County Poet Laureate, 2011 – 2013

In his new collection,Passage, Richard Bronson wisely starts with the months of the year, focusing on twelve reflective, often lyrical poems. In them he observes the passage of time, the mood of the hour. The second section, GP, becomes a memorial to his father, a general practitioner of medicine….In a last section, Congruences, Bronson’s own life as a doctor is told in dramatic incidents between life and death. Written with vivid narrative images, the emotional charge, the strange fragility of our human existence emerges. –Claire Nicolas White
