An inventive new collection by the writer whom Colm Tóibín called "an assured and brilliant voice in Irish poetry."Go Giants, Nick Laird's stunning third volume of poetry, is full of "epic ambition." In a collection that's "easily his most accomplished to date . . . [Laird] gives everything of himself in a poetry as expansive and thought-provoking as his considered response to an infinitely complicated universe needs it to be" (Guardian). Laird boldly engages with topics ranging from fatherhood and marriage to mass destruction and the cosmos. Go Giants is a brash, brave, and wildly imaginative new collection.
