Kathleen McCracken


A Geography of Souls is one of the most ambitious yet accessible poetry collections of the last ten years. Kathleen McCracken has a light touch and a dancing lyrical intellect, as she ranges through the generations, at war and in peacetime, uniting Native and European dreams with personal conduct and discovery. All through the book, like a ghost between the lines, roams the last wolf hunted down in the north of Ireland, where she currently lives and works.
