The Sphere of Birds, Ciaran Berry's debut collection of poems, effortlessly moves back and forth between here and there, then and now, the personal and the historic, the modern and the mythic. Berry imagines the transatlantic journeys of John James Audubon and reveals his own heartfelt experience moving from his first house. The poems take as their subject such varied experiences as an eye exam in Manhattan and chasing rabbits around a beach in Donegal. These poems have a strong sense of place, whether it's the imagined space of Coney Island in 1903 or the playground of Berry's childhood convent school. -- Publisher's description.
