Goodnight Youth – Poems
Goodnight Youth is the first poetry collection by writer/poet Nathan Nicolau. Written shortly after being released from the mental hospital, this short yet eclectic collection of poems muses on two central themes that plagued Nicolau's mind: regret and love. The poems in this collection explore, deconstruct, and reaffirm these universal themes. Honest, raw, and emotionally-charged, Goodnight Youth marks the beginning of a promising young writer.
