This book, No Jewels, is centered around abuse & love, especially how the two interact. And, then, I wrote a soundtrack to both support the words and show what happens after you emerge from abuse.
No Jewels is a book that tries to narrate a young man’s life that was loved well, loved wrong and, once, not loved at all. Sadly, this story is not an aberration or oddity. There are numerous No Jewels tales in every city. This book of lines, devices, stanza and spaces hopes to serve them all. Tai Allen writes from a place in which understanding innocence lost is not the fault of a child. Nor should it ever be.
