Publisher Comments:

“Tim Nolan’s voice is funny and serious at once, sly and direct, wry and heartfelt...Anybody who can turn a poem called ‘Brussels Sprouts’ into a psalm to the strange and compelling beauties of family, mortality, and sea salt is not to be missed.” —Jim Moore

"The familiar streets and landmarks throughout Tim Nolan's The Sound of It will resonate with Minneapolis natives, and even some New Yorkers.  The sounds of Nolan's poems cover a full octave—from childhood to "Almost Fifty," Diamond Lake Road to Palestine, brussels sprouts to Holy Thursday.  Nolan harmonizes the ordinary morsels of life with the profound in such a way as to awaken the reader to a conscious living in the moment.  He focuses on past and future as inseparably flowing elements of the present.  Within this overture of poems, "the voice you hear is generous and expansive like Whitman's, at home in the 'easy suit' of the body and yet always surprised to be part of the here and now" (Joyce Sutphen).  Nolan's voice embodies his longing to offer "something lasting that might be repeated and would carry a life of its own."—Minnesota Literature 

From Almost Fifty:

These years don’t mean as much as we think—

they are merely markers for memories—milestones—

or millstones and the effect of the birthday

is always the same—here I go—or I must be

in the deep end of the pool.

Tim Nolan is an attorney in Minneapolis.

Synopsis:

Luminous poems about aging, raising a family, and living with faith in the world.
