Product description

Review

Nuala Ni Chonchuir epitomises the poet/writer who uses the intensity of her poetry skills in prose to produce, in The Wind Across the Grass, sensualist microcosms of love, life and love gone astray. Here is a sharp but compassionate eye that can make us believe that these strange and wonderful characters breathe, hope and suffer....A good writer, like any good artist, should perturb and make us think. So, with this criteria, she fully deserves all accolades accorded to her.--Julia Bohanna "The Short Review "

. . . a gifted and ambitious artist, with a delicate feel for the accuracies and narrow tolerances of the short story.--Mike McCormack "To the World of Men, Welcome "

She is a real writer--Jeremy Addis "Books Ireland "

There is passion, mythology and raw human experience. Reading Nuala Ni Chonchuir, you learn that your life is reflected in what she sees. It is this quiet invading honesty of her words that makes her writing real.--orfhlaith Foyle "The Galway Advertiser "

Ni Chonchuir has a deft word-touch and is imaginative and resourceful with poetic ideas. [Her] work is vital and often funny and quirky, with a punchy diligence.--Fred Johnston "Kiosque "

An affecting compendium of short stories centred on the theme of nudity and sensuality is the latest offering from Dublin-born poet and author Nuala Ni Chonchuir. The focus of these stories is not of a sexual nature; Ni Chonchuir emphasises the normality of life and, on occasion, the suggestive yearning of couples in thrall to each other, but rarely anything more daring. Her tales are complemented by varying backdrops - from the sultry heat of Barcelona to Parisian walkways - and, throughout, by fluid and descriptive prose: "The sea, the sea. It's as huge as the sky... it's dark like thunderclouds, as dangerous as war." The stories featured here are generally no more than a couple of pages in length; it is a testament to Ni Chonchuir's ability that, even allowing for such brevity, Nude is still a success.--Fachtna Kelly and Julian Fleming
