David is so happy to offer this debut collection of poetry by Irish poet and musician Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, the first book published and featured alongside his own work. It illuminates deep themes of human experience with a profound, unwavering eye. With chapters titled Admonition, Love, Belief, Water and Myth, the poems display a true virtuoso's ear for rhythm and language, leading the reader through joyful, mythical and surprising landscapes with articulate, soulful cadence.
Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin's first book of poetry is early music indeed, from someone I expect to have a long and storied literary career. The notes of this music are those of a clear and unique voice, that, like his extraordinary singing abilities, brings together simplicity with virtuosity: a strong artistic family lineage with the pop of a new millennial perspective - the ancient atmosphere of his native Ireland with the breaking frontier of a new, plugged-in worldwide community - a community that supersedes all national boundaries. It is a book of small but miraculous wonders. I am immensely proud to stand behind Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin and the rock solid integrity of this book. - David Whyte
