“Frank Dullaghan’s quietly spoken poems move between tenderness and terror with a humane warmth. They deal with the business of the world as experienced by a fully human being. The language follows and embraces a wide range of affairs, touching on loved, known and dangerous things - the texture of experience - lightly, unfussily, with a lovely ear for the plain cadence that is, for most of us, the sweet-sad music of being alive.”
Frank Dullaghan’s second collection is accomplished, wistful and poignant - with enough light to see not only the dark, but into the cracks between things, where hope and love live.
