In my life I have been fortunate enough to experience many unusual and varied things. I have always liked poetry and have tried to capture the range of emotions that everyone lives through. I hope people like my clumsy attempts, but as long as they generate some response in the reader, I feel that my job has been done. "“WHERE LEADS THE ROAD is a collection filled with one man’s thoughts about the world and his experience. While the topics are varied and wide-ranging in WHERE LEADS THE ROAD, what is clear is that William Gordon Mallett has poured his entire life into this collection. It is made up of memories both big and small, snippets of everyday scenes such as the pad of a cats paw are written alongside poetic political commentaries and reflections on global society. For the most part, the poems in the collection ring of nostalgia. IR Verdict: WHERE LEADS THE ROAD, a highly personal and intentionally soothing collection of poems by William Gordon Mallett, is both at its worst and best when rooted in pure nostalgia.” - IndieReader Review
