'A mesmerisingly powerful book' SALLY ROONEY
Illuminating the lives of outcasts, misfits and malcontents, this is the darkly funny and moving second book from the award-winning author of Young Skins.
A quiet night in the neighbourhood pub is shattered by the arrival of a sword-wielding fugitive. A funeral party teeters on the edge of this world and the next, as ghosts won't settle. A shooting sees an everyday call-out lead a policewoman to confront the banality of her own existence.
In his new collection of stories, Colin Barrett takes us to the barren backwaters of County Mayo, via Canada - always with an eye for the abrupt and absurd.
