Second collection of poems by poet based in Amherst, Massachussetts, with strong Irish links

This is the second collection of poems by Peggy O’Brien, the follow-up to 2004’s Sudden Thaw (Lilliput Press), which featured among the Books of the Year in The Irish Times.

“Here are poems of a quiet elegance that examine the natural world in a soft and almost grateful manner. ‘Feather, Rocks and Bones’ is an account of what O’Brien has gathered on her “necessary walks through owl deranged forests”, and it ends with a heart-stopping moment of parental feeling, triggered by the sight of a “foetal feather still albumen glued” to the inside of a shattered egg. O’Brien knows how to invest her poems not just with grace, but with an undercurrent of real power.”—The Sunday Tribune
