‘His tact and pacing, in the individual sentence and the overall story, are beautiful … McLaverty’s place in our literature is secure.’ Seamus Heaney

Michael McLaverty, one of Ireland’s most important short story writers, painted with acute precision and intensity the Northern Irish landscapes – lonely hill farms, rough island terrain and the tight back streets of Belfast. Focusing on moments of passion, wonder, or bitter disenchantment, these short stories, in the compassion of tone and the spare purity of the language, are nothing short of masterly.

With an introduction by Seamus Heaney and an afterword by Sophia Hillan, this edition is a fitting celebration of a writer who has been compared to both Chekhov and Joyce. If you enjoyed Michael McLaverty’s short stories, you might also like his novels, Call My Brother Back and Lost Fields.
