‘To look up from Padraig Regan’s words is to find oneself gently re-fitted into the world,’ writes Vahni Capideo, praising Padraig Regan’s ‘awesome originality and honesty’.

The poems of Some Integrity bring something new to the Irish lyric tradition.

Queerness is a way of looking, a perspective, grounded in an awareness of the porous and provisional nature of our bodies.

The book’s social encounters and exchanges, its responses to the work of artists, its figures in a landscape, and its considerations of food and desire, work as capsule narratives and as an exhilarating extension of that lyric tradition.
