Synopsis: Ethna McKiernan's Sky Thick With Fireflies is laced and bound by memory. These poems hold the past to light and insist upon remembrance. Included are moving elegies for her father, for a friend's son, for the dead of 9/11, for her own child lost to adoption, and for the homeless population with whom she works. McKiernan's language of the ordinary is charged with the pervasive sense of compassion that governs this book.

Review: She writes in direct, generally unadorned lines that have an unobtrusive, almost shy musicality. . . a serious and resonant collection. --Books Ireland

A collection to be read and re-read. McKiernan has much to say and all of it worth hearing. --David Troman for Orbis
