These new stories by the acclaimed author of Notes from a Turkish Whorehouse are at once visionary, hilarious and piercingly observant. Whether he is imagining a father and son walking the streets of Cairo or concocting a hilarious parody of a certain wildly popular inspirational author from Brazil, Philip Ó Ceallaigh is a writer who demands to be read.

An artist of extraordinary gifts ... already touched by greatness ... Of the dozen stories here, perhaps ten are so perfectly achieved and exhilaratingly confident that you feel Ó Ceallaigh is developing a form all his own (Joseph O'Connor Guardian)
It's a long time since I have read a collection of stories so absolutely pleasing on every level ... Every story makes you feel that you're in the presence of a powerful, questioning intelligence ( Independent)
Ó Ceallaigh's command rarely falters ... a sharply funny collection ( Sunday Times)
'A great writer ... a refreshing change from the same old, same old of most Irish short story writers. With the possible exception of Anne Enright ... it's the best collection since his last one'
