9780141038094: The Pleasant Light of Day

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.

Review:

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)

Review:

'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'
