"In delirium... in silence... we recreate our lives as legend, as myth,

as solace, as suffering, as joy beyond frailty." –M.T. Kelly

These are forceful poems of grace, grit, and determination, poems of the city, poems of the countryside. They not only have their own Kelly music, but that rarest of qualities — a music between the lines.

Kelly’s prose memoir and his short story not only have the authentic feel for childhood and all its arbitrary shaping family forces, but a true feeling for the neighbourhoods in which he was born and raised.

We are born with the impermanence of our mortal frailty: The writer, the poet or storyteller, would speak beyond the grave, and he would speak about his mortal frailty to tell his readers, as M.T. Kelly does here, not only of the sorrow of impermanence but of the joys beyond our frailty.
