They're stories and characters that have been around a while but which have lost none of their bitter and brilliant darkness. The first, the title story, is about as dark and as bleak as it gets; for something more perfectly troubling you'd have to turn to Chekhov, or the Bible.

Heartbreaking and compelling, Eugene McCabe tells sad and depressing stories from the early 19th century of Ireland driven by the ironic juxtaposition of humanity, racial differences and religion. May 12, 2015 Desmond Beddoe rated it it was amazing.

Eugene McCabe amazes me more with everything I read by him. I first discovered his incredible talent in his novel DEATH AND NIGHTINGALES - it caused me to seek out other works. While his output is paced in a way to cause his fans to ache for more, the quality of it all is first-rate.

A master of arresting dialogue and intimate characterisation, celebrated as a major playwright and author of one of the most important Irish novels of the last fifty years, McCabe demonstrates his outstanding gift for short fiction in this revelatory and haunting collection.
