There Are Little Kingdoms

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

From the author of "City of Bohane," a debut collection that "could easily have been titled These Are Little Masterpieces'" ("The Irish Times")

This award-winning story collection by Kevin Barry summons all the laughter, darkness, and intensity of contemporary Irish life. A pair of fast girls court trouble as they cool their heels on a slow night in a small town. Lonesome hill walkers take to the high reaches in pursuit of a saving embrace. A bewildered man steps off a country bus in search of his identity and a stiff drink. These stories, filled with a grand sense of life's absurdity, form a remarkably sure-footed collection that reads like a modern-day "Dubliners." The winner of the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature and a 2007 book of the year in "The Irish Times," the "Sunday Tribune," and "Metro," "There Are Little Kingdoms" marks the stunning entrance of a writer who burst onto the literary scene fully formed."
