Book Description

A lifetime of poetry and photography gives a unique view of life, nature, the world, and the universe. 

About the Author

Arthur Rosch is a novelist, musician, photographer and poet.  His works are funny, memorable and often compelling.  One reviewer said “He’s wicked and feisty, but when he gets you by the guts, he never lets go.”  Listeners to his music have compared him to Frank Zappa, Tom Waits, Randy Newman or Mose Allison.  These comparisons are deceptive.  Rosch is a stylist, a complete original.  His material ranges from sly wit to gripping political commentary.


Arthur was born in the heart of Illinois and grew up in the western suburbs of St. Louis.  In his teens he discovered his creative potential while hoping to please a girl.  Though she left the scene, Arthur’s creativity stayed behind.  In his early twenties he moved to San Francisco and took part in the thriving arts scene.  His first literary sale was to Playboy Magazine.  The piece went on to receive Playboy’s “Best Story Of The Year” award.  Arthur also has writing credits in Exquisite Corpse, Shutterbug, eDigital, and Cat Fancy Magazine. He has written five novels, a memoir and a large collection of poetry. His autobiographical novel, “Confessions Of An Honest Man” won the Honorable Mention  award from Writer’s Digest in 2016.
