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.

'Superb... There is so much life in these pages' DOUGLAS STUART

'Fierce, tender...unforgettable' BRANDON TAYLOR

'Addictive, stylish and violently funny... Outstanding' KEVIN BARRY
