The collection features a wide variety of characters: “sad-hearted priests, old friends, young lovers, rockers and rebels” (Joseph O’Connor). Many of the characters are young Irish, contemplating change in their lives (Publishers Weekly). Publishers Weekly described the book as “terse and graphic, attuned to the voices of his young characters” and praised the stories as “detached from the familiar landscape[s] of Irish fiction;” not a single story occurs in a pub (Publishers Weekly).
