One of the most respected artists in popular music today, Jewel is much more than a music industry success with her debut album selling more than 10 million copies.

Before her gifted songwriting comes an even more individual art: Poetry.

Now available in paperback, A Night without Armor highlights the poetry of Jewel taken from her journals which are both intimate and inspiring, to be embraced and enjoyed.

Writing poems and keeping journals since childhood, Jewel has been searching for truth and meaning, turning to her words to record, to discover, and to reflect.

In A Night Without Armor, her first collection of poetry, Jewel explores the fire of first love, the lessons of betrayal, and the healing of intimacy. She delves into matters of the home, the comfort of family, the beauty of Alaska, and the dislocation of divorce.

Frank and honest, serious and suddenly playful, A Night Without Armor is a talented artist's intimate portrait of what makes us uniquely human.

A bestselling writer of poetry and prose, Jewel is also an actress and performer. She has recorded four bestselling albums and also starred in Ang Lee’s film Ride with the Devil. Her first book, A Night Without Armor, was a New York Times bestseller. She lives in California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic This is an amazing collection of poetry that shows every aspect and side of her personality, and the way she thinks. It's incredible the way she expresses herself, and the beauty of her writing itself. As a fan of Jewel's music, I noticed her song-writing too had her whole self put into it, when I heard she was publishig a book of her poems, I knew I had to get it. After you read this book, you will gain insights about things you've never thought about. And also the ability to understand her more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jewel Kilcher being a lover of poetry, i was interested when i heard that jewel had a book. i wasn't eager to buy it, mind you, because it would probably just be a bunch of fluff that would sell well for publicity. it was not. on a recommendation from my cousin, i bought it for a quick read on an airplane -i read it my whole vacation! even when i was finished, i went back and read them over, finding new meaning each time.
