Pin Pricks is a collection of deceptively simple poems and aphorisms, each of which expresses an understanding of what it means to be human in this high-tech, global age. The poems leap from urban first world concerns to third world struggles, from the solidly grounded to the surreal, from sombre to witty to frighteningly harsh. They constantly remind us that we are all intimately connected, struggling, and fortunate to be alive. Like the pricks of a pin, they are short, sharp and memorable.
