Lyrical, dark, comic or iconoclastic, the Irish short story has always punched well above its weight. Here, Anne Enright, the Man Booker Prize-winning author, has brought together a rich new collection of Irish short stories by authors born in the 20th Century – from Mary Lavin and Frank O’Connor
With a pithy and passionate introduction by Enright, The Granta Book of the Irish Short Story traces this great tradition through decades of social change, and shows the pleasure Irish writers continue to take in the short story form. Deft and often devastating, the short story dodges the rolling mythologies of Irish life to produce truths that are delightful and real.
Eugene McCabe, Colm Toibin and Hugo Hamilton, introduced by Anne Enright
