Precisely four months before turning 40, award-winning poet Jennifer Lawson sat down one day to write a collection of poems. At her computer most of the day on June 4th 2019, Lawson penned this free verse, stream of consciousness selection. It spans quite a lot: from thinking about the age one peaks to thinking about future generations and the inspiration they may bring. This collection of poems is Lawson’s most honest, personal and intimate–from a poet who has produced hundreds of thousands of poems in her lifetime. Poems on My Way to Forty is a book for everyone.
