The Aftermath of Unrest by Natalie Nascenzi is out now.
The book is a one-of-a-kind poetry collection/novella that tells an extraordinary story of poetry, art, and fate. Through a combination of poems, paintings, and short stories, it takes readers on a journey through passing time, the battle of the mind, the lessons of life, and finding balance in the chaos of reality. This incredible and true story is captivating from cover to cover and encapsulates the message: Anything is possible, anyone is capable, and even in the darkest of times, there is hope. The author’s painted portrait graces the cover. The interior contains original paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Grant McGrath paired beautifully with the poems and short stories. The reader is guided through the author’s personal experience as she describes the extraordinary circumstances that led to their collaboration before and during the pandemic in New York City.

The Aftermath of Unrest turned out to be an expected favorite. I love the poems and the artwork scattered throughout this collection. Missing Sunrise, Restless Evenings, and Dear Reader are some of my absolute favorite poems in this collection. They stood out to me in a powerful way. I also really liked how I could pick up this book, read a few poems, set it down, and return to it feeling like I was entering into an entirely new book, never getting bored. The Aftermath of Unrest is a book I looked forward to reading, which is why I recommend putting this on your TBR list!
