Staff Pick: “A short story collection now and again is good for the soul – and the attention span! This collection is McCann at his finest, with darkly sparkling stories that explore life in all its many colours; from the yellow-socked sister who is smuggled into the country, to the chatty beautician, to farmer Cathal and his unique lake. Whether you like to savour every word or devour them all in one sitting, don’t miss these glorious stories.” Rebekah.

An ageing nun is tracked to ground by her sister; a garrulous beautician must lay out the corpse of a loved one. These are eloquent tales of exile and displacement, of characters always in search of a way back home or of a way to leave it. Mischievous, assured and versatile, Colum McCann’s collection of short stories marks him out as one of our best contemporary writers.
