I have no words for the overwhelming generosity of the review of my book that recently appeared in the Los Angeles Review of Books. Although I’m not sure I’d agree with its assertion that Rapture is one of the ‘greatest collections of poetry that the Irish literary canon has to offer’, those words are really something to wake up to during an ordinary week in August.

Many thanks to James O’Sullivan for his thoughtful piece on Rapture as well as on collections by my fantastic fellow poets Elaine Cosgrove (Transmissions) and Annemarie Ní Churreáin (Bloodroot).
