There Are Little Kingdoms

by Kevin Barry - £8.99  Canongate Books Ltd (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786890177 | ISBN 10: 1786890178

This award-winning story collection 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 hillwalkers 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 surefooted collection that reads like a modern-day Dubliners.
