About the Book

This book captures the imagination of its reader right from the beginnings attribution.

Written over the course of Francis' adolescent and young adult life, it not only gets one emotionally involved but psychologically and spiritually. You feel what the poet writes. You sympathize with, relate to, and understand his words.

Most modern books of poetry on the shelves of bookstores, contain roughly thirty or so poems. This fascinating display contains near ninety. So for the true lover of poetry as an artform, one gets ones monies worth, and can only wait for the next exposition to be presented by this modern poet who wishes to be compared to none other than himself.

About the Author

James Francis is a modern day poet. Born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey, only a stones throw away from NYC, he has reduced the need to define, and in doing so, has transcended his self through ink.

As a young writer, his work was published in school newspapers, his home town paper, college literary magazines and the National Library of Poetry. However, growing up, he was uninterested in the underground poetry movement and unimpressed by the constant sales pitches of contests, anthologies and numerous subsidiary establishments seeking to publish his work. The poetry in A Heart in Hell speaks for itself. James Francis has also written a second book of Poetry, three children’s books, a screen play, numerous short stories and more. He seems to prove that a poet can write just about anything.
