White Knuckle: A Poetry Collection - Paperback Kindle– July 23, 2020
by Steven Bruce (Author)
Bruce's debut poetry collection, an autobiographical report on the reality of life in a poverty-stricken, drug and violence-fueled environment, is a gut-wrenching composition of grief, loss, and abandonment at an early age.
This powerful book is brutal, tragic, and moving: an essential read.
Praise for White Knuckle:

— Bob Beagrie, Ek Zuban
"There are experiences in poetry to which you become a witness. And it is essential that there be witnesses."
— Helena Nelson, The Sphinx Review
"Steven Bruce's poetry is intelligent, sharp, and demands to be heard."
— Mandy Maxwell, The Stanza
