ISBN 978-0-9957916-0-2Contemporary Irish poetry: third collection from award-winning poet and novelist, Liz McSkeane."In poems of both expressive energy and technical skill, she lays bare an underlying order that most of the time we only guess at....Hard-won insights here, compassion and a measure of clear-eyed joy, sustained and framed for us in humane, beautifully-achieved poems."Paula Meehan
"These poems are studied presences, careful of concept, sound, syntax and grammar, able to transpose an extraordinary sensibility into a careful system of lines. Lovely surprises gleam in the tracks and pleats that take you into brisures of received reality." Máighréad Medhb
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
