The poems, crafted during a period of intense upheaval, both personal and ultimately creative, reflect the poet's myriad identities, including LGBTQ themes, as well as those of diaspora, the urban and Gaeldom's emergent cosmopolitanism. Characterized by Mac an Tuairneir's confessional style, the collection is the culmination of a triad of volumes, begun with previous publications Deò. and Lus na Tùise. The volume includes original Scottish Gaelic poems and songs, with self-translations into English and translations into Irish by Mac an Tuairneir's friend and collaborator, the Donegal-based poet Sam Ó Fearraigh.
