Gerard Beirne’s last collection of poems (which won second prize in the Patrick Kavanagh Award), Digging My Own Grave, rooted themselves in the landscape exploring the inherent tensions between spirituality and physicality. A Man in Diapers continues this vast exploration but roots itself this time in fatherhood – what it means to be a father of children in a physically demanding world. With humour and sincerity he imagines also the burden of being the Son of God in an all too human existence. Beirne’s vision is both powerful and unique leading readers on a profound and richly rewarding journey.
