Imagine a man not wanting to live.

Peter Fallon’s collection continues and expands his report from a farming community in the Irish midlands.

It includes a series of poems which chronicle the experience of women and, in particular, the crosses they are forced to bear. The book pivots on three extended poems about deaths which the author tries to comprehend one, a murder; another, an uncle’s suicide; and ‘A Part of Ourselves’, prompted by the death of his infant son. For all these troubles, Eye to Eye embraces windfalls and consolations in a cherished place.
