Matters Of Life & Death, Paperback / softback Book

Matters Of Life & Death Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Any book of stories from Bernard MacLaverty is a cause for celebration, but Matters of Life and Death is more than that, as it is - without question - one of the finest contemporary examples of the short story as a genre.

Beginning with the sudden, nauseating terror of a family caught up in an explosion of shocking sectarian violence and ending with the white-out of an Iowa blizzard and a different kind of fear, Matters of Life and Death is a book about bonds and connections, made and broken, secret and known.

Vivid, beautifully controlled and written with effortless skill and empathy, these stories are object lessons in the art of short fiction.
