Rhythms of the Eternal Uprising

Author of “The Slums of Nightfall,” William Wright, Jr. has penned another accomplished book of prose. ‘Rhythms of the Eternal Uprising,’ is a deeply reflective collection; the subject matter very relevant and timely. The reader will be carried away by the artful way in which the pieces flow from one to the next; however, it is the content which is compelling and reminiscent of what it is to live in precarious times.The poet speaks of lessons unlearned and revisiting the same subject matter as a society, referencing the darkest of times, when his people were, “swinging from a noose.” Making the analogy of black banners and the call to action re-awakened. “A true peddler of panic, with an arsenal of lies, home crumbles before your eyes,” draws our attention to an apathetic society, with deep seated fears, prepared to do battle and are beating their drums to this rhetoric.Throughout this book are threads of hope, springing eternal. William Wright, Jr. spars within himself to believe in the overall goodness of humanity, trying to maintain a balance between idealism and the reality of the present day. It is a call to all of us to reflect, become our better selves and harken to positive change, finding the eternal hope within us. I am moved by the moments of clarity and beauty in his method of juxtaposition between dark times and confidence that we shall at long last, learn our lesson. This is not a book to be taken lightly, for it is too precious a message to disregard.Brenda-Lee Ranta, author of Myriad of Perceptions

Life’s about being comfortable, isn’t it? You find what makes you happy and you stick with it for the rest of your days.

That’s what Jimmy Stephens thought. Routine was Jimmy’s best mate, until routine found another group of friends. Somehow stranded on the remotest island in the world, Jimmy was forced to make peace with a whole new way of living, and a whole new way of seeing things.

Jimmy’s tale is one of isolation, adaptation and inspiration, challenging the fundamentals of twenty first century life.
