The long poem in this collection concerns the snooker player, Alex Higgins, the footballer George Best and the boxer Johnny Caldwell. All died of drink, all died in poverty, whether relative or acute, all came from a city in one country and all found fame in another. These poems ask questions of individuals torn between Ireland, Britain and America.

"The snap and crackle of a poet at work"
(Book Choice)
"The character is exact, the personalities robust and the poems, pleasantly emotional"
(Irish Times)
