Forever Afternoon cover
Forever Afternoon

Forever Afternoon demonstrates sure craftsmanship, sensitivity, and keen insight into the motivations and reactions of a variety of characters, sometimes presented with dramatic or narrative precision from their own point of view. When Adam David Miller writes from his own experience or imagination, the reader can identify with the universality of his perceptions. His lyrics are celebrations of life, a refreshing spectrum of simple and complex experience interpreted with a mature wisdom. 
     Many of Miller’s poems have appeared in Neighborhood and other Poems, a chapbook, and numerous magazines and journals over the years. He is also editor of the anthology,Dices and Black Bones,and editor and publisher of Mina Press publications. Forever Afternoon is his first major collection and is the winner of the first Naomi Long Madgett Award, sponsored by the Hilton-Long Poetry Foundation.
