Drawing on quotations from a wide range of poets, philosophers and writers, the conversation of the book moves in a kind of rolling wave that is simultaneously story and analysis, report and ongoing investigation, all the while pushing towards an answer to the question (more pressing than ever in our hi-tech age) of how to be alone. Maighread Medbh is an Irish poet with five published collections of her work to date. One of the pioneers of performance poetry in Ireland in the nineteen-nineties, she continues to impress audiences with her unique style. Born in Co. Limerick, she has pursued several ways of earning a living, including the Irish Civil Service and Internet content management. She currently works in the public library service. She lives in apartment-land, Swords, Co. Dublin.
