In Stirling we’ve long known of Kevin McGowan’s literary talents, so it’s a sincere pleasure more than any great suprise to know he has triumphed in the Dreich chapbook competition with a rich and absorbing collection. Here is a winningly understated poetry rooted in lucidity, dignity and profundity. Illuminated by forest moons and neon demons alike, these poems, so crisp, resonant and clear-eyed, are alive with the immediacy of awareness and the lastingness of subtlety.
