“I have always lived deliberately.” These are the words of an exceptional poet who, in Trouble Light, has concentrated on the themes closest to his heart and mind: working-class ethnicity, family life, war and recovery from war, prisons and the prisons we create within ourselves, personal loss, and our inability to heal from certain injuries.

The author himself adds, “The poems about Italy that make up the last section of Trouble Light are not pastoral poems of the landscape, but poems about memory and the connectedness of historical experience.”
