This collection of thirty poems is truly representative of the recurring themes in the poetry of James Conroy. Though non-religious, there is a decided spirituality running through the poems that pays tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of the modern world's loss of committed values not associated with gain or notoriety.
