Quick overview This is a beautiful collection of short poems and photographs around the themes of love, loss and light and is the second collection from this Dublin-based poet. "One of the truly great achievements of Fragments is to take the optical arena and weave from the source of light itself, mystical and uplifting possibilities." - Eileen Casey (Poet, fiction writer and independent press)
€15.00

"Orla Grant-Donoghue’s visionary gift extends far beyond surface and depth perception. Finely sifted particles of light and shade explore the landscape of love and loss through nature’s ever changing prism. Emotional texture draws from details fragile yet illuminating (‘constellations of shells’), resilient yet yielding (‘life’s jagged timeline’). Shape opens portals of memory in mysterious ways. From feather, sky, forest and shore, sensual imagery reveal the poet’s lyrical sensibilities. Whether present or transient time, mood symphonies orchestrate heartbreak layered with hope. One of the truly great achievements of Fragments is to take the optical arena and weave from the source of light itself, mystical and uplifting possibilities."

SMYTH PETE
9781907918070
LOCAL invites us into a forgotten corner of contemporary Ireland – Tallaght, on the periphery of Dublin – where Pete Smyth has lived and worked for over thirty years. Smyth’s uniquely intimate account captures the richness and humour of a community at the frontline of Ireland’s rapid modernisation. His approach is deeply affectionate, but without sentimentality, inviting us into private spaces, moments of quiet drama – and some wild nights in his local, the Killinarden House pub.
