About the book…
An update of the 1994 edition of his selected poems, Ruined Pages gathers together the best of Fiacc's work from his early poems right up to his most prominent work on the Troubles.
His work has garnered criticism from some quarters but there is no doubting the rawness and unflinching accounts of his experiences. A profoundly religious and intellectually daring poet, who played an integral part in documenting the ethical and social collapse that surrounded him.
But behind the chaos and barbarity there lies a gentleness, a humanity that acknowledges the pervasive sense of lost innocence.
