Daniel Simon’s collection Cast Off offers the reader a remarkable fusion of poems that explore the magic of place and travel the love of family and the mystery of creativity. Each poem included in this collection stands by itself and has the extraordinary ability to present a world with a unique originality.

Daniel Simon has given us the gift of a poetic imagination rich in soul and in craft.
