Deferred Reality is more than just a book of poetry. Besides the poems about life and love, the author takes the reader on a tour of critical social considerations, using unparalleled wordplay. Humor plays a big role in the book between the philosophical statements and poetic debauchery. Deferred Reality grabs you from beginning to end. Born and raised in Utrechter (April 12, 1960), Mark Smit said goodbye to the city after 30 years. After some wandering, he now lives with his family in the friendly village of Drenthe De Wijk, where people still greet each other on the street. In addition to his fascinating work as a social therapist in a treatment institution for people with intellectual disabilities, he fills his days with the things that make life worth living.
