"I arrive and fling my schoolbag aside, full of homework I haven’t started yet – page after empty page to be filled with irregular verbs of the future tense."
"Like [Eavan] Boland, Ní Ghríofa constructs a mysterious world for her readers from the matter of ordinary life. The poems of this collection impress upon us that magic and depth can be found in the minutiae of the everyday.” - Poetry Ireland Review
“She is a brilliant addition to the distinguished succession of bilingual poets writing in Irish and English." - Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Ireland Professor of Poetry
“Ní Ghríofa enables the reader to recognize the attraction of the syntax and sonorities of the Irish language. She makes the language sing" - Clíona Ní Ríordáin, Université de la Sorbonne, Paris.
