Out of stock
An important anthology which brings together thirty four short stories by Irish women writers.
‘Cutting the Night in Two – the title itself a marvelous evocation … I can only say that there wasn’t one story I did not draw something from and some of them remain with me still. Edna O’Brien’s cutting and astute observations on the class system in The Journey provides a reminder that the greats are great for a reason.’ – Irish Tatler

‘At their best the stories are irresistible – Mary Lavin’s superb, bittersweet, ‘Lilacs’, Éilís Ní Dhuibhne’s evocative, elegiac ‘Summer Pudding’, and Clare Boylan’s hilarious ‘The Stolen Child’…” – Irish Times
‘An accomplished compilation…rounded and substantial…Blánaid McKinney’s ‘Please’ [is] a most heart-wrenchingly tragic and tense piece of writing. It is worth buying this book for that story alone, never mind the rest of this collection of entertaining and highly enjoyable short stories.’ – Sunday Business Post
