Scealta: Short Stories by Irish Women

by Edited by Rebecca O'Connor
£8.99   paperback  Saqi Books (2006)

Scealta: Short Stories by Irish Women by Edited by Rebecca O The short story is one of Ireland's national treasures, and in these pages are some of its finest practitioners, from such established names as Julia O'Faolain, Claire Keegan and Christine Dwyer Hickey to the exciting new voices of Judy Kravis, Eithne McGuinness and Cherry Smyth.
Here we have stories of dysfunctional marriages, abnormal goings-on in rural outposts, urabn alienaton and kitchen-sink dramas. Domestic violence, child abuse and abortion are laid startling bare. The voices are bold, unsentimental, often very funny, and always deeply affecting.
