Despite our best efforts to control our lives, the people we happen to meet often direct our sails, affecting how long we live, whom we marry, the children we have and the lives of others.

In Escape Velocity-50 True Poems Richard Peres pulls us into the lives of his past friends and family with passion, wit and irony.

He describes flashing moments whose impacts are lifelong and relentless, encapsulating a lifetime in a few chosen words: 'Lacking creativity he did nothing not making the connection nor the intersection with her life." We identify almost immediately with our own lives, making us reflect on how we arrived to this point and how it all happened.
