The BookViral Review:
In ‘Desert Angels’ you will find a thought-provoking and inspiring book, whose content belies its length. Despite offering a mere 70 odd pages, author Lyman Ditson crams every paragraph with a challenging perspective, propelling the reader headfirst into deep thinking and self-reflection.

Each chapter introduces different and ever increasingly strange characters, who although seemingly imagined by the protagonist, become solid in an assumed reality. An Alice in Wonderland-style narrative, interspersed with humour and cleverly crafted ridiculousness, hints at figurative meaning, and questions whether we are, in fact, the master over our own destiny, or helpless pawns in some higher game.

As the title suggests, ‘Desert angels’, despite its simply arranged style and droll element, contains a spiritual theme, which runs throughout each standalone situation as the poetry which enhances each vignette prompts the reader to pause and take stock of their own frailties, motivations and beliefs.

Ditson’s poetry is written in free form, designed to direct the reader to the salient point of its message, with proficient use of line breaks and punctuation to intensify its theme. Some lovely imagery dresses the emotions conveyed beautifully.

‘Desert Angels’ is in its pure form a journey of self-reflection for the author but moves the reader to leave inattentive and transitory thoughts behind, to reflect on the understanding of life, and how mindful meditation can change both self-belief and our personal journey through time and space.

A variation from his first collection of eclectic and surprisingly constructed poetry, ‘Please Don’t ask’, Ditson’s latest offering commands conscious thoughtfulness and some careful consideration.

An intriguing read ‘Desert Angels’ is recommended for anyone looking for something that is thought provoking and a little bit different.

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.
