Mahon is always poised, but his poise is that of a man balanced on the edge of the abyss. What gives Mahon's work its secret weight is absence, the hollow heavy ache of all that is not there: happiness, love, family, the cherished place, whatever. -- John Banville, The New York Review of Books. Derek Mahon has one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary poetry, Irish or otherwise. He is a witty Romantic, a Belfast Keats with a Popean sting. Mahon can be tragic, but he's never gloomy. -- Brendan Kennelly, The Irish Times

Derek Mahon, best known as a poet, worked as a freelance journalist for many years, and his first prose book brings together a selection of his feature articles, lectures and book reviews. Some of these, like the essays on MacNeice and Beckett, Brian Moore and J.G.
