The Man with His Back to the Room is a collection of poems that captivates the reader with its unique style of free verse and touch of avant-garde.

"The arms that wave from the windows are black& the cats that roam the street are black & there are black beards & black hands & black market toys& you’ve blackened the windows & shut my eyes…”
Down to earth and expressive, these selected poems bring reality and life (which reflect his Barcelona setting) through dynamic images and language.
“The man in the gray hat
has a pawn ticket in his pocket & a memory of suicide.

In winter he carries a gun & news of religious sacrifice.”
For lovers of modern free verse with a fresh approach—you can’t go wrong with this one.

Roger Aplon is a seasoned author living in Barcelona, Spain. His prior works include Stiletto, By Dawn’s Early Light at 120 Miles Per Hour, It’s Mother’s Day and Barcelona Diary.
