On its surface Skellig Michael reads like a fast-paced international thriller involving crimes in high office, terrorism threats, espionage, corporate takeover battles, sex, lust, poignant romance, chase scenes, and shootouts. But readers who probe deeper may find the novel more provocative and complex than they initially thought. And in the end they may decide—as the protagonists themselves do—that the rocky landscape of the novel is a metaphor for life.

For some 700 years after its foundation in the 6th century, the monastery on Skellig Michael off the Kerry coast was home to a vibrant monastic community. For this anthology, Paddy Bushe invited some of Ireland's best-known poets to spend the night among the bee-hive huts, puffins and gannets, and to write of their experience.
