In Defence of Hawaiian Shirts
Poetry. B N Oakman's deceptively conversational tone and wry humor complement writing that is elegant, sometimes confronting, and which shuns obscurity in favor of clarity. He elicits feeling through style, phrasing and understatement rather than by imposing emotion. You'll be drawn into topics ranging from the socio-economic to the personal--the ekphrastic to football--the political to the historical.
