KILROY WAS HERE (published by MotesBooks) is a collection of new and found poems that document a typical American family whose son, Johnny, is a soldier during WWII. Told mostly from the perspective of Johnny's little sister, with some passages from advertisements and announcements of the era or from letters Johnny writes home, KILROY WAS HERE puts a face on war from the perspective of both the soldier and the family he leaves behind. With humor and heartbreak in equal measure, Constance Alexander draws the reader right into those trying times. The result, historian James Klotter says, "reminds us of the costs of war, for those who do not survive, and for those who do." Journalist and WWII veteran Al Smith says, "Spare, ironic, mysterious - like Kilroy, the caricature in the graffiti - the poems signify a first-hand witness to the emotions and artifacts of that era, from ration stamps to Movie-Tone news and gold star mothers." www.MotesBooks.com
