Book Summary:

Shortlisted for the 2019 Irish Times Poetry Now Award Shortlisted for the 2019 Pigott Poetry Award Shortlisted for the 2019 Roehampton Poetry Prize Featured in the TLS & Irish Times Books of the Year 2018 Martina Evans’s Now We Can Talk Openly about Men is a pair of dramatic monologues, snapshots of the lives of two women in 1920s Ireland. The first, Kitty Donovan, is a dressmaker in the time of the Irish War of Independence. The second, Babe Cronin, is set in 1924, shortly after the Irish Civil War. Kitty is a dressmaker with a taste for laudanum. Babe is a stenographer who has fallen in love with a young revolutionary. Through their separate, overlapping stories, Evans colours an era and a culture seldom voiced in verse. Set back some years from their stories, both women find a strand of humour in what took place, even as they recall the passion, vertigo and terror of those times. A dream-like compulsion in their voices adds a sense of retrospective inevitability. The use of intense, almost psychedelic colour in the first half of the book opposes the flattened, monochrome language of the second half. This is a work of vivid contrasts, of age and youth, women and men, the Irish and the English: complementary stories of balance, imbalance, and transition.

Book Summary:

In this collection, the author loses, finds and redefines herself, in poems that are sometimes visceral and often humorous. She ultimately shows how meaningful life can become after a period of darkness and how transformative those experiences can be. Anne Walsh Donnelly's debut chapbook with Fly on the Wall Press 'The Woman With An Owl Tattoo' came 2nd at the International Poetry Book Awards 2020. 'These are personal poems, where the reader shares with the poet a space as intimate as the conjugal bed. From the everyday idiom of housewives and farmers to the imagined voices of beasts and inanimate objects, Anne Walsh Donnelly captures the humour and pathos of real life with unique honesty.' - Audrey Molloy, poet and author of Satyress 'In Odd as F*ck, Anne Walsh Donnelly recounts one woman's journey through pain and growth. The poems are poignant, stark, and beautiful, heavy with unanswered questions, but buoyed up by levity. This is potent work.' -Nuala O'Connor, author of The Juno Charm Sample poem; 1957 - 1959 On the hottest Sunday in July, the same day Mam got her first period, she was sent to her father's room to wake him for tea. She cried when she touched his tepid skin and begged him to open his eyes. In the fields cattle lowed, udders heavy with milk. Two Christmases later, my grandmother pressed Mam's hand against her abdomen, told her of the operation in January. 'I'm afraid I might not wake up.' 'You mustn't cry, you have to be strong for your sisters, ' the nuns told Mam, the day before the funeral. She watched over her sisters as they stood shivering in the graveyard, under the shadow of a Great Oak. She became the roots of their saplings, chainsawed through her own pain. 'This is poetry; raw, untethered, honest poetry. It is poetry that doesn't hide, doesn't whisper but instead stands tall and roars. It allows us to get to know the author, to journey with her as she navigates through family, sexuality, ageing and motherhood. This is poetry that tells us that it's okay, that life is often not easy but there is always hope, poetry that gets straight to the point, that is pure, that is real. This is poetry.' -Steve Denehan, poet and author of Days of Falling Flesh and Rising Moons 'Anne Walsh Donnelly states that Death is not nothing, it is everything-this could be the manifesto for her fierce and delicate poetry. A disarming openness and honesty lights up in every poem while her voice never loses its humour or balance, ranging. from the visionary to a wonderfully universal everyday demotic.' - Martina Evans, poet and author of Now We Can Talk Openly About Men

Book Summary:

With a rare clarity and fearless honesty, journalist Daemon Fairless tackles the horrors and compulsions of male violence from the perspective of someone who struggles with violent impulses himself, creating a non-fiction masterpiece with the narrative power of novels such as Fight Club and A History of Violence. A man, no matter how civilized, is still an animal--and sometimes a dangerous one. Men are responsible for the lion's share of assault, rape, murder and warfare. Conventional wisdom chalks this up to socialization, that men are taught to be violent. And they are. But there's more to it. Violence is a dangerous desire--a set of powerful and inherent emotions we are loath to own up to. And so there remains a hidden geography to male violence--an inner ecosystem of rage, dominance, blood-lust, insecurity and bravado--yet to be mapped. Mad Blood Stirring is journalist Daemon Fairless's riveting first-person travelogue through this territory as he seeks to understand the inner lives of violent men and, ultimately, himself.

Book Summary:

Between Men and Feminism had its origins in a lively colloquium at St John’s College, Cambridge in 1990. It discusses how two decades of feminism have affected the ways men define their own masculinities, and how they have responded in their own social, sexual and political lives to the challenges posed by the evolving feminist critiques of patriarchy and maleness itself. The collection contains a great diversity of approaches from Britain and North America. It includes viewpoints from academics, a poet, an educational researcher and the members of an active men’s group. Gay issues feature prominently, as do psychoanalytical views, and a number of the pieces provide a refreshingly personal and practical outlook. Between Men and Feminism shows men finding their own way within the spaces feminism has opened to them, rediscovering their own gendered voices and participating in the transformation of controllong ideologies in their daily lives. These very readable accounts will appeal not only to students in the social sciences and gender studies, but to all men who find themselves responding to the feminist challenge.

Book Summary:

During the last operation for the UN, Alex Craven sustains a career ending injury. He does know how to tell Paul Blair of his decision to retire. As usual, Blair makes it easier for him by broaching the subject first. When John Gannon also decides to retire at the same time, then Blair must make a decision about his own future. These three have been a force to be reckoned with for very a long time, and Paul Blair tries to find a way to keep this small group intact. Blair has already talked to and accepted a post to be a special undercover agent outside normal law enforcement agencies and departments for the president. He would be the president’s ace in the hole. One way to keep this trio together would be to convince Craven and Gannon to join him and be undercover agents for the American president. Having agreed to join Blair in this adventure, their first task is to track and arrest two rogue DEA agents, in which the system seems to be incapable of doing. It is while doing this that Blair uncovers the fact that a multibillionaire with a god complex, one Vernon R. Foster, has decided to destroy first the presidency and then the government of the USA, and set himself up as the supreme leader of the United States of America. His reasons for doing this are to right the wrongs of the South, who lost in the Civil War. By his efforts in catching Foster, Blair unlocks a vast fortune in money and also a huge stack of small arms enough to reequip most of the nation’s police forces. Unfortunately, it is the motivation for Blair to retire gracefully from the field of conflict.

Book Summary:

This book examines the role of religion and spirituality in desistance from crime and disengagement from gangs. Drawing upon in-depth interviews with male gang members and offenders as well as insights gathered from pastors, chaplains, coaches and personal mentors, the testimonials span three continents, focusing on the USA, Scotland, Denmark and Hong Kong. This volume offers unique empirical findings about the role that religion and spirituality can play in enabling some male gang members and offenders to transition into a new social sphere characterised by the presence of substitute forms of brotherhood and trust, and alternative forms of masculine status. The author presents critical insights into the potential relationship between religious and spiritual participation and the emergence of coping strategies to deal with the ‘stigmata’ that gang masculinity leaves behind. With its wide-ranging and multi-perspective approach, this book will be essential reading for students and scholars of gang culture, masculinity and spirituality, as well as policy makers and practitioners.

Book Summary:

The only information we have on Atlantis is from a very ancient Egyptian account that describes it as bigger than all their neighbours combined. Why is this fact ignored by most of the fanciful theories? From Atlantis to our current scientific predictions, the truth about so many things becomes clear and obvious only if all the facts are collected and examined, yet many people just select those that agree with their thinking. The resulting conflict between experience and belief, truth and distortion or good and bad, is only resolved when science, philosophy and theology are harmonized and examined as aspects of one universal truth.

Book Summary:

At her third attempt, Jerusha Burnett wants to become the perfect wife. Instead, she finds herself trying to become the perfect widow. Whilst engaged in this, she plays an elaborate trick on her two gay house guests - James and Oswald - and ends up disturbing the dust on a death. The scene is set in the Scottish Borders (in an imaginary village near Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott). It revolves around Kirkfield House, which Jerusha inherited from her late husband, Hamish Burnett. The action revolves around the magnetic Jerusha (born Mary Louise Patterson), not much over forty-years-old, blonde, vivacious, curvaceous and generous. It is April Fools’ Day 2010 and Jerusha buries a dressmaker’s dummy in the veggie garden, knowing that James and Ossie are drunkenly watching from an upstairs’ window. As events would have it, the police are present when, later, the trick is exposed, the dummy exhumed. But... in the course of unearthing a ‘body’ - with permanent rigor mortis - the police find the skeleton of Hamish’s first wife, Françoise Burnett. What is the fourteen-year-old secret of her death? If she didn’t just go missing all those years ago, was it murder, and who was responsible? We will find out...
