"one of the most captivating and distinctive voices in contemporary Irish writing"

As a visual artist and filmmaker, Duncan is particularly attuned to the force of image (in Forty-eight Pots of Honey, he writes of “my headlights merely registering the moth-wing flares of snow swooning into my path”). But he meticulously avoids the metaphorical overkill of a prose constantly hankering after the condition of poetry. In three short years, the author has placed himself at the very forefront of writing in Ireland. Midfield Dynamo is further proof of the range and ability of a writer who has nothing to fear from the “old-fashioned” team formation of determination and inventiveness.
