Broken hymns. Desperate prayers. Tales of first heroes. Stories of the street. The poems in Steve Meagher's first book, Navy Blue, walk the middle ground between sorrow and salvation, tackling themes of devotion, regret, innocence lost and mortality through an array of dark landscapes and narratives of the dispossessed. Written in sharp and urgent language with undercurrents of raw emotion, this book marks the arrival of a brave and original new voice in Canadian poetry.
