Review:
“This book recalls John Masefield’s salt-spray ballads of O’Brien’s era (and the 20th century), but there are nods to E. Annie Proulx’s The Shipping News. And parts of it sound like Ezra Pound’s Canto II, and make use of ‘non-poetic’ materials in the same way Pound does in his Cantos.” George Elliott Clarke, The NovaScotian
