Frightening New Furniture (Salmon Poetry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In poems laced with the blackest humor Kevin Higgins spares no-one, least of all himself. In this his third collection of poetry, he takes the reader through the hubris of boom time Ireland and out the other side into a strange country where everything is suddenly broken again. Just when Ireland imagined itself to have finally escaped history, the statues of virgins and freedom fighters are on the move again. Higgins goes all the way into the dark to investigate what's left when youthful political idealism - his "old political furniture" - gives way under the sheer weight of what actually happens.
