Description

In How Now! Alan Moore treats themes of love, evil, and personal loss with gentle humour and tough seriousness. He evokes memories of Ireland in the sixties, seventies and eighties, capturing flashes of awareness from childhood, youth and adult years with masterful description of emotion and settings. This absorbing work is his second collection of poems, following Opia, a Poetry Book Society Choice in 1986, which was described by Ciaran Carty as a virtuoso first collection'.

Reviews

."..[Alan Moore] has written a searingly autobiographical book which bears comparison with Paul Durcan's "Daddy, Daddy". Moore describes an unhappy childhood in the late 1960s and early 1970s in painstaking detail, often adopting the voice of a younger self, moving from a briefly sketched social world to the anxieties and terrors of the child"--"Irish Times"
