Alan Titley is a prolific short story writer who moves beyond Ireland to enlarge international themes. The hundred short fictions in this, his third collection, illustrates with affinity the sharp acerbic humour that inspired the original tale-bearers in the major work of Boccaccio, The Decameron. A poetic sensibility gives marvellous tonality to the story-telling.
- Hayden Murphy, Chapman
This new collection from Alan Titley is refreshing. Titley's inimitable voice and unique way of viewing the real world and portraying that of his fertile imagination will charm the reader.
