""The dance of language, of knowing and not knowing that death is near, of sharing and hiding, of anger and tenderness, make Monica Corish's poems worthy additions to the canon of grief poetry."" - from the Foreword by Sharon Foley, CEO Irish Hospice Foundation

""A beautiful and intensely moving account of the author's experience of nursing her terminally ill mother."" - Jane Clarke

""Unflinchingly honest about the actuality of terminal illness, while simultaneously remaining tender, lyrical and deeply humane"" - Dermot Bolger

""She has hammered out her language on the hardest anvil of all, and reached an utterance surprising in its clarity, stark in detail, universal in its accessibility while deeply personal."" - Gréagóir Ó Dúill
