Troubles

Troubles
A Nonfiction Poetry Book by Alexa O’Kane

This is the story of a child growing up in war-torn Ireland; of a musician who migrated to the United States with only $50 and a guitar to his name; of a man who braved the bridges of New York City and the collapse of the Twin Towers. This is the life of Patrick O’Kane.

From the turbulent streets of Troubles-era Derry to the highest barrels of the George Washington Bridge and beyond, the poems of Troubles explore a daughter’s interpretations of a father’s life that has been anything but ordinary.
