A chapbook of 10 short stories based on song titles, published by Doire Press. Here, a lonely Galwegian finds redemption with a rook; the mistakes of the past still haunt the present in a Japanese fishing village; a troubled woman tries to “disappear completely” in Berlin.
‘Sparky language and unexpected turns, pathos and humour, viciousness and emotional resonance, these are the hallmarks of Máire T. Robinson’s fiction. In this collection, she follows Flannery O’Connor’s dictum that stories should be ‘short but deep’. This is a writer who is here to stay.’
– Nuala Ní Chonchúir, author of Mother America and YOU
