Description

This new collection of eleven stories by one of Ireland’s most important writers brings together the best of Evelyn Conlon’s work from the last ten years, and a number of new stories, including a novella-length story.

In this collection, Conlon vividly imagines her characters in the wider world, whether it be Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Italy, Monaco or a house, with two drills of vegetables, in Skerries.A man and woman must wander around the equator because of a lie they told during the anti-apartheid days; a man holds out in a border-straddling tree; a Hiroshima woman decides to get pregnant after surviving the bomb; an Irishwoman attempts to assassinate Mussolini, another fights for women's suffrage in Australia.

Brilliantly observed, witty, and full of hard-won truths, this collection shows how borders, movement and history can change and transform people’s lives.
