Daniel Keene’s writing is always intriguing, most particularly because his characters and their issues are so acutely realized. He distils day-to-day life and brings us his own unique ‘poetic realism’ that proffers subtle, perceptive, poignant and thought provoking insights.
It seems, to me, that this work is about when the everyday meets the ‘shadow.’ Where the sudden announcement of life changing intentions throws light onto what has tacitly been ignored.
