On Passing is an exploration of identity – gender, race, ability – Hegarty navigates each of these constructs in his collection.  The speaker in these poems is at times raw and vulnerable and others self-assured bringing weight to other, to outsider, to binary. Memorable and deeply human, this collection is filled with honest and difficult questions.
