Facsimiles is a superb second collection from a talented young poet. Developing his unique voice, first showcased in Winter Lines (2008), Daniel Healy dazzles with powerful writing pared down to the essentials. Poems that at first appear to be fragments resonate long after the page is turned; cool, sharp language that stirs the depths.

“When the need arises to excise the troubles of a day just gone, this is a book to be reached for and, as with lowering one’s face to a bowl of chilled water, dipped into. Dan Healy’s poems are quiet moments… be they of acutely observed park, roadside caff or river – they ask us to share in his sense of wonder at a moment’s this-ness, ‘...a shiver of light...’”
Sam Smith, The Journal (on Winter Lines)
