Kyle Dargan (Author)
In this his fourth collection, award-winning poet Kyle Dargan examines the mechanics of the heart and mind as they are weathered by loss. Following a spate of deaths among family and friends, Dargan chooses to present not colour-negative elegies but self-portraits that capture what of these departed figures remains within him.
