Epiphanies & Elegies is a collection of delightful, accessible poems shot through with wonder, humor, faith, and Irish Catholic heritage. Brian Doyle has injected each piece with perception, insight, and compassion. These spiritual works contain the voice of a father, a husband, a man openly in love with his family, and proud of his heritage. Doyle illuminates seemingly ordinary, everyday events in poems that will immediately touch with the reader with their truth. These warm and insightful pieces are sometimes funny, sometimes poignant takes on the small wonders and inevitable tragedies of life. This book is a delightful addition to the world of spiritual and inspirational writing.
