Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Sacrilege Brendan Cleary is firing off irreverent messages to anyone who'll listen. Obsessed and obsessive, bleak but almost blissful in a maniac fashion, he's scathing yet giving himself the same lashing as anyone else within tongue reach. One could almost see him as a fallen Messiah, a troublesome, tormented prophet showing us the way through the fragmented wilderness that is the modern city an urban cowboy of broken hearts, shooting from the lip.

Synopsis:

'If it weren't sacrilege, I'd call Brendan Cleary the fallen Messiah, a troublesome, tormented prophet showing us the way through the fragmented wilderness that is the modern city, staggering through the disintegrating concrete jungle with his kindred dispossessed. He's the urban cowboy of broken hearts, and he shoots from the lip. His Irish Card was a tearful and brilliant testament of estrangement and exile. Sacrilege finds him in the last chance saloon of inner exile, firing off irreverent massages to anyone who'll listen: obsessed and obsessive, bleak but almost blissful in a manic fashion, scathing yet giving himself the same lashing as anyone else within tongue-reach.

Synopsis:

Brendan Cleary is a part-time lecturer, poet and stand-up comic. Sacrilege is his first book-length poetry collection since The Irish Card was published to acclaim in 1994.'
