Award winning author
Irish Author

From the award-winning author of Night Boat to Tangier comes stories of rural Ireland in the classic mode: full of love (and sex), melancholy and magic, bedecked in some of the most gorgeous prose being written today.

Since his landmark debut collection There Are Little Kingdoms in 2007, and its award-winning sequel in 2012, Dark Lies the Island, Kevin Barry has been acclaimed as one of the world’s most accomplished and gifted short story writers. Barry’s lyric intensity, the vitality of his comedy and the darkness of his vision recall the work of masters of the genre like Flannery O’Connor and William Trevor, but he has forged a style which is patently his own. In this rapturous third collection, we encounter a ragbag of West of Ireland characters, many on the cusp between love and catastrophe, heartbreak and epiphany, resignation and hope. These stories show an Ireland in a condition of great flux but also as a place where older rhythms and an older magic somehow persist.

'One of the most abundantly talented novelists writing today.'
Daily Telegraph

‘These are brilliant and vivid and uproarious stories. It’s a rare writer who can call a tune like Kevin Barry.’
Lisa McInerney, award-winning author

‘Barry is wickedly funny, slyly transgressive and consistently brilliant. He is constantly turning tricks with language before upending us on the thwarted desires of his characters and the dark energy of his landscapes. And underpinning it all, the melancholy of men that is Barry’s hallmark.’
Mary Costello, author of The River Capture
