OUT OCTOBER 22

"Reconstructions is a wondrous outburst. Steafán Hanvey’s poems are an unrestrained response to the work of his father, the great Irish photographer Bobbie Hanvey. [The poems] are bold improvisations..nobly dishevelled, and they cry out to be read."
- Michael Longley, CBE

"This unique and heady blend of documented violence and photographic memory poses timely questions for present social understanding of the way we were."
- Medbh McGuckian

"Authentic, innovate and keenly-honed prose poetry.. An astonishing and visceral work... Reconstructions is a celebration of life and a validation of two lives' work."
- Billy O'Callaghan

"Prose-poems of poignancy and power..
A stunning symbiosis of word and image."

- Adrian Rice
