  • Hawks & Other Short Stories


A powerful new collection of short stories from Norther Irish writer Peter Hollywood.

subtle and nuanced, with a seam of pitch-black humour…Hawks flies.
The Irish Times, 28 September 2013

With Hawks, Peter Hollywood has crafted a gripping collection of stories which reflects the changing face of Northern Ireland.

While Northern Ireland is in the process of a gradual transformation into another place, despite the glitz on the surface, it is yet to arrive. Haunted by the collective memory of moments shared, it could embrace a bright future, or retain the darker colours of its past.

In clear, elegant and sombre prose, though never beyond humour, emotion and feeling, Hollywood charts the movements towards this new world with gusto.
