GHOSTS by Nick Conroy
Every poem in Nick’s collection GHOSTS touches on the theme in some way – whether it be overtly, as in the title poem, or more succinctly, as in Dragonfly – in which the poet explores ephemeral elements of his perception of his mother.
"There’s a hard grit to the poems, which meets this fluid, powerful movement of language head on to create waves of recognition and understanding."
- Wendy Pratt (Poet)
"I started reading Ghosts by @Nick_Conroy on the bus and got that engrossed in it, I missed my stop and the last stop and all the lights went out! That's the sign of a good book, that is."
- Dean Wilson (Poet)
"Just finished Ghosts: a beautiful, horrid, haunting, gorgeous and lingering collection. Class."
- R.M. Francis (Poet)
