A mixture of equal parts of love and grief, “Songs you can’t dance to” contains poems that center on the anticipation and joy of new and maintained love as well as the sorrow and pain of longing and loss. Additionally, this volume includes eight works of short fiction that range in theme from high school love to the unending echo of a national tragedy. With “Songs you can’t dance to” Steven Harz begins to explore the key components of the human experience.
There is comfort in reading Songs You Can't Dance To. I challenge anyone to read this gem and not connect to Steve's work. You will soon find yourself reflecting back to your own life, whether its a fond memory of your childhood or a flash from a not so distant past. Reading many of Steve's work brought back joyful recall of such beautiful times in my life. It is also a true reminder of how much we all should attempt to fully enjoy love and the ones we love now.
I've enjoyed reading "Songs You Can't Dance To" by Steven Harz immensely. It is a book for lovers and losers. A book celebrating young love while remembering times of lost love. There is a story or poem inside for lovers of all ages. Young and old alike will read this book and say to themselves, "Ah, I remember that feeling" and smile.
LOVE this. Started to read it, couldn't put it down....and have gone back to read it again. Completely captivated. Such powerful feelings behind this writing. I feel like I am looking not Steve's open heart and somehow invading his privacy. So much heart and soul....deep emotion. Reminders of memories lost. This is really beautiful and I'm left wanting more!
