This is Maeve’s fourth collection, and charts a worldwide journey in poetry, haiku and haibun, a hybrid form which combines prose and haiku. Inspired by familiar European cities, and by more exotic locations ranging from South America to the Indian sub-continent, O’Sullivan conveys their colour, detail and impact, engaging in a lyrical cartography. You are invited to follow this route and explore the question of whether ‘elsewhere’ merely means being in a different geographical location.

Shirley Bell, The Blue Nib –
The poet is excellent at capturing all the senses stimulated by place and pilgrimage.
Patricia Prime, Haibun Today –
Elsewhere is a richly satisfying book: great ingredients, beautifully distilled, exceptionally well-matured. Enjoy. It tingles right through. It’s all pleasure.
Dave Read, Presence –
Diverse in both theme and poetic form, honest and humorous, and vast as the expanse of her travels, Elsewhere is a book to be enjoyed by readers of haiku and poetry alike.
Sandra Simpson, Breath blog –
Armchair travellers, those who have visited these places and those longing to get out and explore will enjoy O’Sullivan’s genuine and honest approach.
