Contemporary Ireland and superstitious Ireland of the early fifties brought vividly to life. Ponder the fate of the missing policeman whose brief marriage to a lesbian has the local populance frightened and bewildered- conjure up the lifestyle of young men where the pub and rural dancehall offer the only escape from the social poverty of an era where the automobile is tentatively making its appearance- what happens when an aging farmer advertises for love in the Lonely Hearts section? All twelve stories are thought provoking and truly memorable.
