Fishing the Sloe-black River Paperback
by Colum McCann
Stunning collection of short stories from the prize-winning author of DANCERAn ageing nun is tracked to ground by her sister; a garrulous beautician must lay out the corpse of a loved one.
These are eloquent tales of exile and displacement, of characters always in search of a way back home or of a way to leave it.
Mischievous, assured and versatile, Colum McCann's collection of short stories marks him out as one of our best contemporary writers.
