What people are saying about Nathan Bell:
Bell’s intellectual acuity isn’t like most people’s – it’s sharper, edgier. His lyricism has the same hardness you’d imagine from a Clint Eastwood or Paul Newman character, or from writer Jim Harrison. It’s unblinking, strong, true. ----Holly Gleason, Option Magazine
Bell lives in a world of less thans, left behinds, lost souls and not enoughs - and isn’t afraid to rail against the scraps that are supposed to suffice. Get ready to be inspired.
