9780099437390: The Portable Virgin

The characters in this fierce and witty first collection of stories stand at an oblique angle to society. Full of desire, but out of kilter, their response to a dislocated reality is mutinous, wild, unforgettable.

Review:

"Witty and acerbic...unusual and elegant. She is a writer to watch" ( Today)

"Introduces a new voice in Irish fiction...a quirky, subversive, original wit and an imaginative linguistic fluency which must be interpreted as the consolidation of a new literary maturity" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

"In sentence after sentence as cool and clear-headed as the moment a migraine lifts, these pained, precise, disquieting stories restore to us the strangeness of the lives we follow beneath the surface of the lives we lead. The Portable Virgin is a remarkable debut" (Aidan Matthews)

"A great new Irish talent which we're bound to enjoy again. I can't wait" ( Irish Indepedent)

Book Description:

'Elegant, scrupulously poised, always intelligent and, not least, original' Angela Carter
