'John MacKenna's short stories are a wonder'
- The Irish Times
This magnificent collection of short stories by one of Ireland’s finest writers is set over the centuries and bound by one connecting factor – a field near the author’s beloved Castledermot, Co. Kildare. Each story showcases MacKenna’s incredible gift of capturing a moment, an emotion, a time in sensuous yet stark language.
Praise for John MacKenna:
‘His stories are imbued with an intense eroticism which sharpens the character’s memories and softens the harsh Irish landscapes in which they live’ – The Sunday Times
‘A writer whose emotional success rarely falters’ – The Irish Times
‘A consummately skilled author’ – The Guardian
‘His restrained, limpid style and rural settings are reminiscent of McGahern’ – The Irish Times
