In Ghost Methods Síofra McSherry presents a complex and loving portrait of Sean Bonney, one that is both personal and political, where death is difficult not in the leaving, but in 'the staying gone'. Here, in these outraged and beautiful poems, McSherry reminds us of the urgency of keeping the fire burning, of the importance of honoring those who have passed, of the significance of the moment that takes friends home, of the grace of the day.


With an introduction by Frank Kelleter


PRAISE for Síofra McSherry:

a quite magical way with the words.

— Peter Conrad, Reviewer for The Observer


With anger and humour, prose and verse, Ghost Methods squares up to death in restless, unpredictable poems that are brimming with life. It's a fitting tribute to a much-missed, fearless poet.

— Tristram Fane Saunders, The Rake
