Third collection by Arnie Yasinski who knows his difference is noticed when he opens his mouth to speak in Ireland; sees how the stasis of Beckett’s ‘Waiting for Godot’ is everywhere, knows how darkness can be camouflaged, how the Irish avoid pain by averting their eyes from the abyss.

Twenty First Century Renaissance will be celebrating its launch on Thursday 8 December, 7pm Woodbine Books with readings by Arnie Yasinski.
