Peter and Jane

'Sometimes I long for home, but not home as it is now, home back then. Back when it was nice. When the sun was always out, and we could play all day out of doors. Before I had to be a woman.'

Graceland

A story from Philip Ó Ceallaigh's upcoming collection.

Responsibilities

"She felt both important and embarrassed, now, in the street. The afternoon was ageing amiably. The all-year plastic Santa bracketed to a chimney on Attracta Road was dusty in soft sun."

Gloria and Max

'Gloria! he said, not loud enough. Gloria! he shouted again. It sounded ridiculous, like some kind of dreadful Van Morrison tribute act. Gloria!'

Words for Things

"What do you think of, I said to my husband that evening, when you think of Monica Lewinsky?"

Magnetic

Michelle Coyne's anaesthetised protagonist falls into dangerous, freeing obsession on an Icelandic holiday.

Books
Trouble

Trouble is another stunning collection of stories from Philip Ó Ceallaigh, a writer who continues to amaze me with the intelligence and muscular elegance of his writing. There is a unique voice in evidence here, fusing Irish, American and Eastern European influences to make work in the highest tradition of the short story. — Lenny Abrahamson
