Olivia McCannon';s first collection explores life on the edge of possibility: in one moment the familiar is blown open, we plunge into the unknown. A chance meeting seals a lifetime; a girl leaps from a window, away from safety - 'she wanted to see what can happen';. From families improvising a living space in Cairo';s City of the Dead, to a veteran of the Normandy landings coming home to the peaceful reparation of 'glueing, welding, soldering';, life is luminous, and resolutely seized. The closing sequence follows the last months of the poet';s mother';s life. A journey into grief and loss, it pays tribute to the courage of refusing false comfort, the strength that in the end enables us to live 'between the lines / of tombs';.
