A beautifully crafted collection that reflects the best of the Irish short story tradition.

"The stories here show a great breadth, empathy for and insight into his subjects. His ability to move elegantly through different styles is not just a welcome addition to the Irish short story tradition bur also a vital one." —Books Ireland

"A fascinating and vital collection. A joy to read."—Elke D’hoker, author of Irish Women Writers and the Modern Short Story

"Richard Power is a gifted stylist whose literary voice shares the eloquent menace of William Trevor."—The Irish Times

"Power wrote a mean clean line both in Irish and in English. Although basically a city man, his knowledge of Irish helped him to get under the skin of the country and turn this sympathy to a feeling understanding of both the ordinary and the fragile who populate his fiction."—Alan Titley, award-winning novelist and playwright
