About the Book

Perhaps forgiveness is possible after all. Perhaps traces of the divine image can be found in adult males, even when they are miserable buggers, self-deluded and prey to odd obsessions. Hankering embarrassedly after the numinous, exiled and adrift amid a flotsam of things that seem to have gone wrong, the people in Harry Smart's poems occasionally stumble across a sort of grace.
