The Hill Road

by Patrick O'Keeffe
£7.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing (2006)

The Hill Road by Patrick O The townland of Kilroan in the 1970s is at risk of being trapped for ever in an earlier version of itself, a time when shell-shocked soldiers returned from the trenches, and convent orphans could be billeted as servants on poor farmers; a time when a glamorous Irish American finds her liberated ways mean flirting is flirting with death, and a chance meeting on a train means the postman's widow must face her past.
 
These four unforgettable novellas mark the emergence of an original and exciting new voice.
 
Winner of the Story Prize 2005.

"Outstanding... There is a wonderful Irish music floating through O'Keeffe's prose, bringing it again and again to the verge of poetry... A remarkable achievement."
