New Irish Short Stories


Edited by Joseph O’Connor (author of Star of the Sea and Ghost Light ) New Irish Short Stories is a stunning collection of new Irish short stories from a fascinating variety of writers, both new and established. Featuring, among many others, William Trevor and Roddy Doyle, Rebecca Miller and Richard Ford, Emma Donoghue and Colm Tóibín, it shows the short story to be a thriving form and one that should continue to be celebrated and encouraged.

This collection follows the two acclaimed editions that David Marcus edited for Faber in 2004-5 and 2006-7.

‘Excellent ... Marcus, as ever, selects on quality while remaining even-handed [and his] selection sits within a great tradition leading from Joyce’s Dubliners via O’Faolain to Trevor, McGahern and beyond.’
Guardian on The Faber Book of Best New Irish Short Stories 2004-5 , edited by David Marcus
