About Torso of an Ex-Girlfriend:

"This is Gerry Murphy's fifth collection of poetry. Close to the spirit of the great Romanian poet, Marin Sorescu, Murphy's work approaches serious issues with a jaundiced eye and a sense of humour that is wicked, gentle, barbed and subtle at the same time. Everywhere, especially in his love poems, there is a refreshing brightness that lifts a gentle satire into the condition of memorable poetry."
