The Ark Builders, Mary O'Donnell's fifth poetry collection, is thoughtful, sensuous and witty, combining the topical with the timeless. One of its themes is that of the ageing woman - the 'walls' through which she has to pass and what she might find on the other side, her relationship with her body, her sexuality, her ability to 'keep going' - which she explores with a refreshing candour.
