This collection is Rita Ann Higgins' fourth volume of poetry.  The ironic pun of the title profoundly bespeaks the frailty of human striving; highlights the craving for something more than the limits  imposed by circumstance.  This volume again displays Rita Ann Higgins' highly developed social awareness; issues sifted through her own personal experience.

During her successful publishing career Rita Ann Higgins has not been swayed from her position of observer, she has not embraced the comfortable appellation 'best-selling-writer' or worse 'establishment poet'.  What makes her work so fresh and exciting is its immediacy - she lives in these words, in the pictures she paints in the world in which deep sadness and wry humour co-mingle with the capacity for hope.
