David O Hanlon shows us that while the past can have a powerful hold over us, beauty, truth and poetry can emerge from the depths of anguish and despair. An astonishing debut.
– Fergus McGonigal

In David O Hanlon s first full-length collection, precise, piercing language illuminates tales from actual, mythical and personal history making all three seem immediate, contemporary and universal.

Readers will hear how four unacquainted deaf men published near-identical essays deconstructing the assumed importance of sound , find new ways of reading the stories of Orpheus, Sisypus, Tantalus et al., and learn of a young man s twelve-year struggle to paint an authentic picture of the sky.
