"Faye Boland’s poetry is a happy combination of musical lyricism and intellectual subtlety. This combination produces poems that are charming and fascinating, which will compel readers to read and re-read them many times. This book will continue to fascinate all its readers during the years to come." – Dr Brendan Kennelly

"Recounted from an eclectic range of perspectives, Boland’s poems chart a restless search for home, for purpose. A judicious collection in an era when people feel increasingly disconnected from their own sense of worth." – Eileen Sheehan

Of 2017 Hanna Greally International Literary Award-winning poem, Peripheral:
"The economy and freshness of language is riveting ("my roof is the sky, the wind my walls, every night it blows the same word: Homeless, Homeless"), form as scaffold, arrests the eye and ear. Each word is a volley of intent, like an espresso shot of thought that catches the heart off guard. We’re called to attention in the fluency of the poet’s intent, Boland’s style reminding of the Scottish poet, John Burnside…" – Mary Melvin-Geoghegan
