Where do we go when our war ends? How should we feel when we leave it? How can we love a place so much when it's come so close to taking our lives so many times?
Sangin, Then and Now is a stoic collection of poetry from a lifelong loyal subject of the commonwealth. The verses within tell the story of a young man following in the footsteps of his father as we accompany him on a journey to war and back.
It is a rationale for the dangers we face in staying in a toxic relationship with professions and landscapes trying to swallow us whole.
Neville Johnson was born and raised in South Africa by a Mum who was a Nurse and a Dad who was a Police Officer. This early exposure to a life of service to country influenced his most significant life decisions. Before he started writing, this path took him to the United Kingdom, where he ended up in London as a member of her Majesty’s Royal Infantry.
Neville currently resides in New Zealand with his wife and three children. He works at a high school as the Pathways Coordinator, assisting young people in developing essential life skills for their transition into the workforce.
