    One thought on “My Life as Adam”

    1. BRYAN BORLAND MY LIFE AS ADAM‘You have to have been there…’ No, this insensitive statement regarding whether or not the reader can or would understand the depth of feeling of a journeyman is shattered in Bryan Borland’s intensely honest and painfully lovely book of poems, MY LIFE AS ADAM. Bryan Borland is a gay poet, writing from experiences and developmental thought patterns that have defied the at times Sisyphusian steps to becoming a sexually liberated male. He enters his world as a n [...]

    2. My Life as Adam, starts right in the beginning, when hormones meets social norms and the expending mind of youth. It follows with poems about love, fear, loss and joy, the struggle of a social deviant to cast a light on the absurdity of judgement and the struggle for self understanding. The story of a modern-day oppression in the Land of Freedom.

His awareness also shines a light onto events of the times he lived in and the politics that surrounded hi [...]

    4. Borland has certainly grown as a writer. His most recent collection is heartbreaking, but here he is clearly a new poet. The language stumbles even when strong and smart. I loved and related to a lot of these poems despite their flaws.
