by Joseph O'Connor - £9.99 Vintage (2013)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780099565451 | ISBN 10: 0099565455
A deeply moving collection of stories from the bestselling author of Star of the Sea.
Ranging from urgently contemporary London and Dublin to New York's Lower East Side in the nineteenth century, from dark comedy to poignancy, from the wryly provocative to the quietly beautiful, these stories - Joseph O'Connor's first collection in more than twenty years - offer a gathering of dreamers and lost souls who contend with the confusions of living.
Here are men without women, children parenting parents, residents of the uncertain country that is post-boom Ireland, emigrants, travellers, cheats and lovers, families, friends and foes.
