Book Blast: Too Much "Ado"



Winner: Goodreads Best Poetry Publications 2011

Praise for "Too Much Ado":
Generally, I am not a big fan of poetry, but Too Much Ado is Tony Angelo at his best. Lyrical, deep, moving. It's not what he says--a lot of poets talk about poverty, race, desperation, humanity, relationships--it's how he says it. He says so much with such a few words. Speaks the harshest of themes in the softest of tones...."--Tammy Ruggles, Amazon.com


SYNOPSIS

Too much ‘Ado’ is a poetry book that tackles some of the major prejudices within the world; this includes race, homosexuality, and children with disabilities. In addition the poem speaks to the heart, reminding us that relationships can be very difficult. For example:


DISGRUNTLED
“I came away from someone that I thought I knew. And if her eyes were any measure then my life would be through.
I’d felt so out of place and I didn’t know why.
It seemed she didn’t recognize me or was I being just too shy?”


A FATHER’S EYES
“I remember standing at the door, peeking out the window, never seeing either of my parents depending on how their career goes.
Those promises that were never kept at a time that would soon be gone.
You sit inside your room and wonder how long must it go on!
Holding one truth within your heart I will never do this to my son…”

Each piece is a simple reminder that while life can be difficult and even debilitating it is better shared together with love and understanding.

Tony Angelo
I am Tony Angelo, the author of adult fiction, poetry and children’s books. I have hosted a blog talk radio program at Robin Falls Kids on Red River Radio called, “The Dreams Of Our Children”. I'm pleased to announce a new joint venture, specializing in publishing eBooks with M.L.R. Publishers. I am on the board of directors for ACOPP, a non-profit organization designed to assist children of prison parents and works to inspire children and adults with simple stories that have a big message. It’s my hope that these stories can touch hearts and influence minds to a higher degree of self preservation. My belief is that a person who learns to read can imagine and shape their own future. More recently, I have delved into the art of film-making with genres ranging from traditional documentary to fantasy thriller style. Please allow me and other creative artisans to take you on this adventure.
