9780099575078: Dark Lies the Island

Winner of the Sunday Times short story prize

Shortlisted for the Edge Hill short story prize

A kiss that just won't happen. A disco at the end of the world. A teenage goth on a terror mission. And OAP kiddie-snatchers, and scouse real-ale enthusiasts, and occult weirdness in the backwoods...

Dark Lies the Island is a collection of unpredictable stories about love and cruelty, crimes, desperation, and hope from the man Irvine Welsh has described as 'the most arresting and original writer to emerge from these islands in years'. Every page is shot through with the riotous humour, sympathy and blistering language that mark Kevin Barry as a pure entertainer and a unique teller of tales.

Product Description:

Dark Lies the Island

Review:

"Stealthy and shimmering" ( Boston Globe)

"He writes short stories that will satisfy any reader" (Shane Hegarty Irish Times)

"This book of short stories seals Barry's rep as one of the most original voices to emerge from the Emerald Isle in some years. Full of acute observation and sly wit, this collection is the ideal companion to his equally excellent novel, City of Bohane" (Ryan Rushton Skinny)

"These darkly comic short stories are beautifully written and the author’s keen appreciation of the vernacular makes the characters leap off the page and thump you in the face" (Ciara Geraghty Woman's Way)

"Wonderfully, restlessly alive" ( The Times)
