Product description

Review

"Colin Barrett's sentences are lyrical and tough and smart, but there is something more here that makes him a really good writer. His stories are set in a familiar emotional landscape, but they give us endings that are new. What seems to be about sorrow and foreboding turns into an adventure, instead, in the tender art of the unexpected." (Anne Enright)

"Language, structure, style - Colin Barrett has all the weapons at his disposal, and how, and he has an intuitive sense for what a short story is, and what it can do." (Kevin Barry)

"Colin Barrett is a young man in the town of the short story, but it’s fair to say he has the run of the place. This is a joyously fine collection, crackling with energy and verve, fit for the back pocket of anyone who loves a good story well told." (Jon McGregor)

"Magnificent...A stunning debut... The timeless nature of each story means this collection can - and will - be read many years from now." (Sunday Times (Ireland))

"Incredible… Human violence, beauty, brilliance of language – this book reminds you of the massive things you can do in short fiction." (Evie Wyld)

Book Description

A magnificent, critically acclaimed collection of stories from Ireland's most exciting young writer
