The poems in Thin Lines – Emer Fallon’s debut collection – explore the places we encounter between sanity and madness, sickness and health, the past and the present, and life and death, travelling from a Wicklow childhood to life in the West Kerry gaeltacht, and examining the many crossing points encountered along the way.
