A poet and a writer, suddenly single under similar circumstances, meet at the house where Jack Kerouac toiled in obscurity before On The Road changed his life. Like the famous writer before them, their lives are transformed by this little house. Itâ€™s an age old story, told afresh in this collaboration by poet Darlyn Finch and journalist Brad Kuhn, whose chance meeting looses a torrent of passion and poetry. Three Houses is a narrative in verse documenting the ecstasies, agonies and everydays of a phoenix rising from the ashes of their troubled pasts. These are words spoken (and sometimes yelled) heart to heart. Buy now.
