Each of us embarks on a life’s journey to reach his or her own dark tower, but what lies behind the door? This collection, whose title alludes to Robert Browning’s 1855 poem Childe Roland To The Dark Tower Came, is a personal and collective quest to uncover answers to life, death, grief, happiness, and the violence wrought on one another. Towers rise and fall, and real and fantastical monsters are encountered, as the writer/reader/pilgrim navigates the bumps and turns of an inquiry which challenges one’s conviction in the Great Unknown.
