The debut short story collection from the winner of the IMPAC Award, the Goldsmiths Prize and the Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award: 'The most exciting Irish short story writer of his generation' Sunday Times
This award-winning story collection summons all the laughter, darkness and intensity of contemporary Irish life. A pair of fast girls court trouble as they cool their heels on a slow night in a small town. Lonesome hillwalkers take to the high reaches in pursuit of a saving embrace. A bewildered man steps off a country bus in search of his identity - and a stiff drink. These stories, filled with a grand sense of life's absurdity, form a remarkably surefooted collection that reads like a modern-day Dubliners.
