Portrait of an Atheist Monk at Prayer

0 out of 5


“From its gloriously witty title on, Portrait of an Atheist Monk At Prayer
is a collection of poems which makes no compromises with the world as
it is usually presented to us. These poems, many of them underwritten by
tragedy, force the reader to look again at things we thought we knew, as if
for the first time. In poems of sometimes cosmic irony, comedy and tragedy
dance together in a way that is often sublime.”
– Kevin Higgins
