An anthology of work from writers and poets taking part in the MA in Writing at the National University of Ireland, Galway, this book was originally published in 2003. It features an introduction by Irish Writer Mike McCormack, Winner of the Goldsmith Prize 2016 for "Solar Bones", who was Writer-In-Residence in NUIG at that time. It features fiction: a bald trapeze artist seeks revenge for a crime against her vanity, a lounge piano player tries to made good one last time, a photographer is inspired by ghosts in a Chelsea warehouse. Poetry: takes us from the Canadian wilderness to the Sierra Madre, New York City and even Totnes, where all the seagulls have disappeared. Reflections: on human loss, small comforts in conflict zones, the abuse of cowboy poetry, and on watching the sun fall off the edge of the world. This anthology is being republished on the occasion of its tenth anniversary as a 2nd Edition, and is also available as a paperback.
