€10.00 €7.50

In his widely acclaimed novels, Philip Casey has shaped a distinctive vision of the emergent Ireland. Now he returns to poetry, in his first collection in almost fifteen years. Quietly asserting that poetry waits to be discovered – rather than being explained or packaged – he blends re-worked older poems with new reflections on love, death and the times we live in, ranging in tone from the light-hearted to the contemplative.

Praise for Philip Casey:

‘Before he was known to readers as a world class fictionist, Philip Casey gave us poems. On the evidence of Dialogue in Fading Light, he remains always and ever a poet of great powers. The wonder and longing, gratitude and grace that inform this work make us grateful for Casey’s many gifts’ – Thomas Lynch

‘Casey is a poet and a playwright; he has a poet’s delicate ear and a playwright’s eye for direction’ - The Times

‘Philip Casey is one of our most intuitive and interesting writers’ – Dermot Bolger

‘Casey gives physicality to abstract ideas with great assurance and he has an eye for things which do not clamour for attention’ Sunday Press

‘Casey writes in a language which is supple, accurate, sensitive and immensely strong’GRAPH
