A selection from this book won the Listowel Poetry collection award 2016.

‘These poems are naked and simple and exquisitely crafted. They gather terse narratives together in clusters, from various corners of the earth, but mostly from memory –that unfamiliar land into which McCabe makes startling raids with the precision and wisdom of a master berry picker.’
Michael Harding

‘Really wonderful poems full of adroit observations, technical ease… and a fabulous humanity….This is beautiful affirmative poetry….’
Thomas McCarthy
