Thin Lines - New and Selected Poems

Thin Lines is the third collection of poems from Shane Martin, a native of Carrickmacross in Co. Monaghan, now living in Co. Sligo. It contains new poems and a selection from his two previous collections. The poems provide a backdrop for meditation on the preciousness of life, the passing of time, love, home, and the people, alive and dead, who continue to inform his experience. The poetry is a celebration of the living flesh – that particular referent without which such meditations would be futile.

Tilting at Windmills - A Spanish Year Chasing a Novel Dream

Mark had never thought of retiring. Barristers don’t retire. However, his 64th birthday was fast approaching. ‘When I’m 64’ and all that, and, beneath the wig and gown, he had always had a desire to write. Time was running out. It’s now or never. He – rather he and his wife, Helen – decided they would take a year out. Like their children had, only later. They quickly ruled out the West of Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. For obvious reasons. And opted instead for a pueblo blanco in Andalucía. Mark could write his bestseller there. A white- washed house in a white-washed village in the mountains of Andalucía. What more could an aspiring author want? He lost no time in getting down to it. A writing room without a view and a typewriter. And no interruptions. Everything went splendidly for a day or two, when fate intervened. Followed by weeks of slow progress while he negotiated surgery and the intricacies of plot. In May, Mark carried out a quarterly review. Radical changes were called for and implemented. Ruthlessly. Beginning with telling Helen he couldn’t come home for her birthday.
