'I can think of very few poets with such a capacity for sustained humour and inventiveness. Underlying Carey’s poems is a clear-sighted voice that registers the follies, pretensions and violence of humanity.’ - Peter Boyle
Rapport is a book of poems with immediate emotional impact. Exploring the dynamics of interpersonal relationships, the poems focus on many of life’s universal concerns: love, memory, identity, ageing, regret, loss, dying and death. Some of the poems are quietly contemplative, and others are charged with emotion, but collectively they offer wisdom and insight that will challenge the reader.
