The Lonesome Road: Collected and New Poems 1984-2014 by Gabriel Fitzmaurice

Whittled down by ‘time and the road', this fantastic collection celebrates both the local and the universal. Gabriel Fitzmaurice gives thoughtful consideration to every facet of life as he has known it; from religion to sport, music to politics, love to community and family - all are here. His career as a primary school teacher and principal is at the forefront to many of his observations as he reflects on the world of education and childhood, and indeed a child's youthful perspective. Deeper personal reflections are conveyed as Gabriel expounds on the town he grew up in. Local characters, events and traditions are documented and his admiration for his native town is evident in his words. The poet clearly holds the role of the family in high regard and writes on becoming a father and, in turn, a grandfather for the first time. Sincere, honest reflections are immortalised in many of his poems, juxtaposed by lighter, more humorous works. Gabriel's voice is notable in its sustained clarity and emotional depth, offering up a celebration of experience that make up one's life.
