The Radio was Gospel examines the poet's childhood curiosity. This very powerful collection juxtaposes the way things should be against the way things are, and visits Venice, San Francisco, Spain, Salthill, the Aran Islands, and the local church, but mostly finds magic and secrets in the front garden. The certainty in paddling pools, bog fairies, yellow rose trees, sherbet dips, Mass, horses, and the radio; that mechanical throat in the kitchen, the ultimate escape. This collection at times displays savage wit and then startling beauty. At times elegant, at times brutal, from a captivating young voice in Ireland; it marks a coming of age.
