Dennis O'Driscoll's third collection contains some of his most accomplished work to date, written with his characteristic blend of poignancy and dry wit. The book is notable for its engagement with contemporary life in both its benign and brutal aspects. Whether evoking the victims of Ulster violence or mapping the rituals of everyday existence, "Long Story Short" confirms that Dennis O'Driscoll 'possesses one of the neatest, most original and nimblest ways with words in Irish verse today' - (Derek Stanford, "Books Ireland").
Born in Thurles, Co. Tipperary, in 1954, Dennis O'Driscoll is a former editor of 'Poetry Ireland Review' and one of Ireland's most widely published critics of poetry. His previous books are 'Kist' (1982) and 'Hidden Extras' (1987).
