Patrick O’Connell’s first collection of poetry glides through a transient landscape with ease and sly wit, slipping softly through moonlit city streets, skimming birdlike under bridges, walking in a dream of fields and trees. His constant companions, faith and despair, transport him with metamorphic force, shape-shifting through imaginative territory of disturbing and uncanny beauty.

Winner of the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer (Manitoba Writing and Publishing Awards).

"Patrick O'Connell surprises with the depth of vision that blasts unsuspectingly out of his poems. The imagery is clear and intense, the vision is clean and experienced. Reading this book is to be delighted in the communality of strangers and the shared regions that balance between disappointment and hope. A wonderful collection. A strong voice."
--Kristjana Gunnars

"These poems are 'fire walking boldly' through despair to conjure up moments of joy and astonishing perception. In teh tradition of William Blake, Patrick O'Connell struggles to create a balance between suffering and rapture."
-- Geoffrey Ursell
