In this rich collection of new poems, Inge Israel draws upon the many voices of her past — Russian, German, Danish, Irish, French and English — to open some of history’s unmarked doors. Among her most powerful recreations is that of Nora Joyce, in a dramatic monologue that shows us her famous husband in a wholly new light.

“There is a freshness, humour and compassion about these pieces”
— Christopher Fitz-Simon, Abbey Theatre, Dublin

Unmarked Doors is Inge Israel’s best collection to date. Her dramatic monologue with Nora Joyce is the clearest lens on the creative conciousness that I have seen since Valéry’s Monsieur Teste.”
— J. Michael Yates

“gossamer-like, yet highly perceptive with haunting musical diction.”
The Edmonton Journal
