In David O`Hanlon`s first full-length collection, precise, piercing language illuminates tales from actual, mythical and personal history - making all three seem immediate, contemporary and universal. It features love poems and elegies, coming-of-age poems and myths; poems which reduce a lifetime to an instant and expand an instant to a lifetime. Readers will hear how `four unacquainted deaf men published near-identical essays deconstructing the assumed importance of sound`, find new ways of reading the stories of Orpheus, Sisypus, Tantalus et al., and learn of a young man`s twelve-year struggle to paint an authentic picture of the sky.
