Description

Poet Leland Bardwell’s keen-eyed, unflinching short stories, were originally published in 1987, and deal with a range of topics of considerable relevance to readers in our own difficult times. As fresh and relevant as when they first appeared, these stories, like Bardwell’s poetry, record what Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin has called “the shocks of our time, the private impacts and the historic changes”.

“Bardwell brings a poet’s eye to observation, her words revealing small hurs and betrays wherever she looks … In these beautifully evoked stories Bardwell inhabits the stretch of alienated lives, waiting for things to get better.” — Books Ireland

It has the immediacy of personal conversation, yet is crafted with care for form. She makes something extraordinary of 'ordinary' experience". — Irish Press "Leland Bardwell's poetry is witty, full of sharp, intimate honesty, full of truth and surprises. She is a poet who has felt the shocks of our time, the private impacts and the historic changes" — Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin
