This diverse collection of stories features “a gathering of dreamers and lost souls who contend with the confusions of living,” in settings ranging from “dark comedy to poignancy, from the wryly provocative to the quietly beautiful”. Praised in the Irish Independent as “An exhilarating array of sharp dialogue and biting one-liners,” the collection has received numerous honors, including being named in several Books of the Year lists and a nomination for Novel of the Year at the 2012 Irish Book Awards (“Where Have You Been?”).
