Description

Coiscéimeanna neamhshaolta i ndubh na hoíche ag coinneáil comhluadair le fear óg ar a bhealach abhaile tar éis céilí; scuaine na marbh ag siúl roimh éirí na gréine; buachaill óg le feiceáil aríst ag a dheartháir blianta fada tar éis a bhá, ach i riocht eile – mar a deir an t-údar féin: “mo leagan fhéin den chineál scéalaíochta a bhíodh ag cur daoine á gcoisreacan fhéin le linn m’óige.” Ach ní síscéalta ná scéalta taibhsí amháin atá sa gcnuasach seo: tá scéalta ann faoi iontais na hóige, faoi uaigneas na seanaoise, faoi theaspach an ghrá. Is suarach an biachlár nach bhfuil éagsúlacht blas air.

Ghostly footsteps accompany a young man on his way home from a céilí in the dead of night; a procession of the dead abroad before sunrise; a drowned boy seen by his now adult brother years after his death, but utterly transformed – as the author says: “my own version of the kind of stories that would have people blessing themselves when I was a boy.” But it’s not all fairy tales and ghost stories in this book: the wonder of youth, the bitterness of old age, the white-hot blaze of love are all themes in this collection.
