This book is an intimate look into the life of a veteran through verse.
This collection is about memories, those bits and pieces of things we experience, directlyand indirectly, then store away. Some times we do it purposely, more often, it just happens.
The poems of this collection tell a story. They represent life events, covering a time line of more than 45 years. You will find everything here from child hood moments, first loves, sex, addiction, mariage, fatherhood, divorce, cynicism, recovery, true love and new beginnings
Don't be surprised if you see something familiar...the fabric of memory and of dreams is univeral.
For the love of a woman,
a man will do great things.

|One who wants to understand the young men who must fight wars, owes himself a good reading of this volume. Its pages take the reader into almost every phase of the consistently misunderstood world of war, and the men and women who fight them. Get it and weep... and laugh... and love every word of it.

sweetheart, poet, author, libary....you get the picture.

|i have had the pleasure of reading this book. i am a child of the war era but had no clue how the war really affected the men fighting. all my information came from the news and from the conversations of men who were half loaded at the local VFW.
EW Richardson gave me a glimpse of what went thru the minds of the boys who went over and came back men. reading his work made me very glad to be a girl in those days.
his other poetry in this book makes me dream of small town america at a time when things were still rather innocent.
i can not chose one poem in Through Smoked Glass as a favorite. i was ushered from one emotion to another and felt guilty about intruding on some rather painful, bittersweet memories. the bottom line is: if you can only add one book to your collection right now add this one.

|I wish to thank you, for taking a moment of your precious time to read and comment on my poem, "Moon Beams", I too am a Marine veteran
Of the Nam era, though I was blessed by reasons unknown, I saw no combat, the war escalated, after I was discharged in June Of 1964.

|My father is a Vietnam Veteran and much of this collection rings true. It has given me a greater appreciation of what veterans have experienced. This collection is more than a tale of a warrior, it is a tale of a life.|

|This book was recommended to me several months ago. It all honesty, I just got around to ordering it and I am sorry that I waited so long. It is certainly more than a collection of war poetry. It is a vivid glimpse into the life and times of compassionate man. I was notably impressed by his evocative phrasing and imagery.
I highly recommend this work to any and all.
