“Trouble is another stunning collection of stories from Philip Ó Ceallaigh, a writer who continues to amaze me with the intelligence and muscular elegance of his writing. There is a unique voice in evidence here, fusing Irish, American and Eastern European influences to make work in the highest tradition of the short story.” — Lenny Abrahamson.
“Philip Ó Ceallaigh is a wonderful writer who dares to stay loyal to the short-story form. In this superb collection, the people he writes about are beautifully observed and precisely ‘fixed’. Here is a master in full control of his material.” – John Banville.
