A companion book to Bolger's recent Night and Day collection of poems about South Dublin, places this sequence in the context of other lives that Bolger's poetry has tried to capture in recent years. It contains Ballymun Incantation, the poem recited by actors and local people as the centrepiece of a public wake to mark the demolition of the first Ballymun tower block and Travel Light a poem about the workmen who built the Dublin Port Tunnel.
