The selection in this volume, made by the poet himself, draws on the extensive ‘Things That Happen’ project (1981—2006), as well as three new books, Several Dances, Humming & Work.
“I have found Scully is best read in public places, a beach or a bus shelter when people are around … I laugh a lot. He’s a good-natured poet and that transfers. While the reputed strangeness in Scully’s work is rooted in the ordinary obvious, the flowers it produces are truly exotic.”— Augustus Young, Golden Handcuffs Review
“For me, Scully is one of the very best Irish poets alive today.”— Mike Begnal, Fortnight
“A light for the language indeed.”— Harry Gilonis, The Gig
