An Fear Nach nDéanann Gáire
This imaginative collection of short stories brings the reader on a riotous journey into a surreal world. It sweeps us along in a whirlwind through stories that are at times dark, at other times awash with colour, and often laced with a sardonic humour. From the sadness of the deserted train station to the hysterical story of the severed leg, by way of cannibalism, one-legged men, male prostitutes and real estate agents, this collection will appeal to the senses, the heart and the head!
Little by little in these stories Micheál Ó Conghaile destroys the boundary between the real and the surreal until they are indistinguishable. The fluidity of style and the lyricism of these stories are testimony to the author’s mastery of his craft.
Unquestionably one of the very best short-story writers in the Irish language.
- Gréagóir Ó Dúill, An tOireachtas
