What People are Saying About This
Moira Egan’s Synæsthesium , like a unique perfume in a beautiful ask, expertly mingles the base-notes of memory and desire, art and womanhood, in the clear container of form. She writes from deep within the senses, but she spills nothing, with assurance of her craft. When we read these poems, we find that our own senses are renewed.
—Carol Ann Duffy
There is no one writing like Moira Egan. No one. These poems detail irreverent discoveries and always- vivid excursions into unknown worlds. Whether those worlds lie behind the velvet ropes of a bar, the locked-in lush temptation of a gated garden, or in a mother’s history, Egan takes us to places where, at first, you may think you’ve been but, oh no, you definitely haven’t. You may have seen a river wear the gold of sunset followed by the cloak of night; but, I promise, you’ve never seen it like this. Synæsthesium is absolutely gorgeous. The final poem will leave you with chills. Egan has given us one hell of a book.
