Lorraine Carey's poetry displays both the durability and the brittleness of Donegal’s granite and flint clad landscape. As you explore this extraordinary collection, you will not come away unscathed. Great boulders of verbs and craggy nouns will stop you in your tracks: poems will sidetrack you through fissures and areas of pitting and darkness that will often prove uncomfortable but mesmerizing.
