Description

*ORDER THE NEW NOVEL BY CLAIRE KEEGAN, SMALL THINGS LIKE THESE, NOW!*

‘No better feeling than reading a book that makes you excited to discover everything its author has ever written…’ – Douglas Stuart (Winner of the Booker Prize 2020)


‘Marvellous-exact and icy and loving all at once.’ -Sarah Moss


‘A haunting, hopeful masterpiece.’Sinéad Gleeson

A long-haired woman moves into the priest’s house and sets fire to his furniture. That Christmas, the electricity goes out. A forester mortgages his land and goes off to a seaside town looking for a wife. He finds a woman eating alone in the hotel. A farmer wakes half-naked and realises the money is almost gone. And in the title story, a priest waits on the altar for a bride and battles, all that wedding day, with his memories of a love affair. In her long-awaited second collection, Claire Keegan observes an Ireland wrestling with its past.
