The Spiral Staircase of Life is a book of poetry dealing with Jorge's years of depression, alcoholism and relationships with his family, friends, strangers and lovers. He also writes his interpretations of people and their interactions with the world. It is a poetic trip into the mind of an average man in an urban environment. We see his struggles with drugs, alcohol, people and all the inner demons that go with these situations. The book is divided into three chapters. The Good, Bad and Ugly of his life and those around him in New York. The poetry represents the author's mood swings from happy to sad to anger and guilt, from trust to feelings of betrayal. He observes people in bars, work, subways and the streets of the city. It's a roller coaster ride, it's a spiral staircase where we all climb up and sometimes fall. In the end we have to dust ourselves off again to make the climb up one more time.Concepcion, Jorge Luis is the author of 'Spiral Staircase Of Life ', published 2004 under ISBN 9781413731354 and ISBN 141373135X.
