Description - According to the Small Hours by Aidan Mathews

In this, his first collection of poems in fifteen years, Aidan Mathews brings together the sacred and the profane, playful and profound, the iconic and the everyday - illuminating the variousness and commonality of human experience. These poems wear their erudition lightly- dazzling us with their fresh observations, the strangely intimate details ('mice among the breadcrumbs of the Last Supper') and a fluid, metaphysical wit that can link a saint's matyrdom to a Sunday roast. Mercurial, passionate and always surprising, According to the Small Hours is a triumphant return to form.

Buy According to the Small Hours by Aidan Mathews from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
