Other People's Houses, 1999

Second poetry collection.

‘. . . an extraordinary collection in which each poem is firmly located among the fittings and fixtures of an archetypal house — real, ideal and metaphorical . . . While Groarke can be playfully enigmatic, it is the sense of real lives lived in brick and mortar houses that lends this collection its most deeply felt narratives.’

— Gerard Woodward, Times Literary Supplement

 

‘She is one of the most effective voices of her generation.’

— Peter Denman, Irish University Review

‘subtle sophistication and impressive formal range’

-The Irish Review, No. 25 (1999)
