Product description

Synopsis

A performance artist opens his chest and displays his beating heart on stage. A young man walks through the hills of south-west Romania, where the locals have peculiar ideas about gold. On the morning of a medical examination, a woman tries to coax her husband off the roof. A smuggler pays off an old debt to his sister and resigns himself to a life of honest toil in the mine-shafts of his home town. A mysterious rodent named Brigitte enters the lives of two old men. And, in the astonishing long story "In the Neighbourhood", the inhabitants of a crumbling tower-block go about their business, unforgettably. The stories of Philip O Ceallaigh create a world that is utterly original and yet immediately recognizable - a world of ordinary people grappling with work and idleness, ambition and frustration, wildness and sobriety, love and lust and decay. Scabrously honest, screamingly funny and beautifully crafted, "Notes from a Turkish Whorehouse" is a brilliant debut from a writer who cannot be ignored by anyone who cares about the art of fiction.

About the Author

Philip Ó Ceallaigh, a native of County Waterford, has lived and worked in Britain, Spain, Russia, the US, Kosovo, and Georgia. He currently lives in Bucharest. Notes from a Turkish Whorehouse is his first book.
