ISBN 978-0-9957916-1-9Cover Image by Paul HattawayInnovative Irish poetry from Ross Hattaway, New Zealand-born poet living in Ireland. "Strangers is an examination of parameters and possibilities. It explores spaces, concrete and metaphysical, easily moving between the natural and the man-made...Strangers will leave you with a curiously angry smile on your face as Hattaway chooses to answer life with whimsy in places, but bemoans the certitude of heartache as well. "Colin Dardis
This is beautifully crafted poetry, contemporary in its themes yet timeless in its evocation of the traveller through space and time. "Northly" creates a stunning sensory and pictorial experience in pitch-perfect tone, of the landscape, history and language of these northern lands, and our place within it.
"Toms reminds us that we are constantly resolving 'in new voices/what time dissolved.'"
Anamaría Crowe Serrano
"Exposure" is a finely-wrought, dramatic collection of poems woven from the landscape and folklore of the Orkney Islands.
"...a very fine book, a dark hymn to the wonder and mystery of this most remote and fascinating of archipelagos."
