Shot of Reality is a focused memoir in poetic form that traces the six movements that occurred within the most pivotal period of the authors adult life.From divorce to a deep love that led only to broken dreams, from single parenthood to a diagnosis with bipolar disorder to the brink of suicide, from moments of grace to the devastating loss of a faith community, the poet / author uses gripping language and potent emotion that allows the reader to take the revelatory journey of three years in one womans life and glean insights for their own.Richerson dedicates the book to those who have been forgotten, to those whose faith has been cracked, to those who sit in judgment, to those who forget to forgive. In the book, youll find more than 100 pages filled with poems which provide both an archway to deeper understanding of the human experience and a bridge to greater community and care.
