Canticle Liz McSkeane
ISBN: 978-0-9957916-3-3 Historical novel set in Renaissance Spain, based on the life of the Spanish mystic poet, St. John of the Cross.  "A formidable feat of imagination underpins this marvellous detective novel set in late 16th/early 17th century Spain...Canticle is a tale for our time, rife with insitutionalised power struggles, truth and misinformation, manipulated in the interests of the elite - same as it always was and is."  Anthony Glavin, The Independent Canticle was a winner in the Irish Writers' Centre/Greenbean Novel Fair, 2016.

ISBN 978-0-9957916-1-9 These are innovative, contemporary poems that both entertain, and challenge readers to examine assumptions and stereotypes.

Funny, often poignant, always compelling, How to Sleep with Strangers is a triumph of wit and wisdom. Cover Image by Paul Hattaway Click here to buy ebook of How to Sleep with Strangers

contemporary Irish poetry by Liz McSkeane
So Long, Calypso, by Liz McSkeane, Dublin: Turas Press, 2017
The conversational tone of many of the poems in this collection belies the subtle craft that underlies and unifies disparate themes.  Calypso  is peopled by a cast of characters recognisable from ancient history and myth, from recent history and from contemporary culture.  The musings of these various personae are by turns reflective and urgent, their concerns social and political, as well as personal.
